The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report to consider an application, made under Section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003, to grant a premises licence in respect of the premises known as Dalbury & Palmer, 40 Wostenholme Road, Sheffield, S7 1LJ (Ref No. 72/18).

 

Present at the meeting was Chris Grunert (John Gaunt and Partners, Solicitor for the Applicants), Lauren Seigies (Applicant), Dominic Seigies (Applicant), Sarah Johnson (Objector to the Application), Chris Johnson (Objector to the Application), Julia Triandafillithis (Licensing Enforcement and Technical Officer), Samantha Bond (Legal Advisor to the Sub-Committee) and Sarah Cottam (Principal Committee Secretary).

 

The Chair of the Sub-Committee welcomed everyone to the meeting and introductions were given.  Samantha Bond then outlined the procedure which would be followed during the hearing.

 

Julia Triandafillithis presented the report to the Sub-Committee, and it was noted that representations had been received from seven members of the public and were attached at Appendix ‘C’ to the report.  Additional information was also referred to which was received by the applicant’s Solicitor.  This had been circulated to Members of the Sub-Committee prior to the hearing.

 

Sarah and Chris Johnson made representations on behalf of the other local residents who had objected to the application, but primarily their representation was around ‘prevention of public nuisance’.  Mrs Johnson also alluded to anti-social behaviour (ASB) and litter in the area.

 

Mrs Johnson advised that being located in a residential area, the serving of alcohol until midnight, seven days a week seemed inappropriate in terms of noise and the potential for rowdy behaviour, which was already an issue in the neighbourhood.  There were concerns over people arriving and leaving the premises, car doors banging, especially late at night and the proposed beer garden would also cause noise through the day.  Mrs Johnson also raised concerns that the rear fire exit door of the building was being used to gain access to the beer garden and stated that the premises were advertising the use of the beer garden on social media.

 

Mrs Johnson commented that there had been constant building work carried out on the premises for the last four years and felt the premise owners have shown little regard for its neighbours. In relation to the problem of litter, in 2016 the industrial waste bins at the premises were left overflowing for a long period of time, which eventually caused a fire.

 

Mrs Johnson advised that there was a residential care home approximately fifty yards away from the hotel; this raised a concern that the vulnerable people living there would be disturbed at a late hour with customers leaving the premises.

 

Mrs Johnson spoke of the long history of issues at the location which continued to make the neighbours anxious.  Through a recent mediation meeting between the owners of the premises and the neighbours, residents were asked  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
