Minutes:

The Committee having –

 

(a)

heard from the General Manager as follows:

 

 

·          

the premises were closed at the time of renewal due to the Government Covid restrictions;

·          

contacted the licensing  officer to see if the licence could be rolled over as there had been a period of 6 months of the licence where they have been unable to trade, but was advised that as the licence had lapsed, would have to make a new application;

 

 

·          

making the application now so that the premises will be licenced in time to open when Covid restrictions are lifted;

·          

there were no representations from any of the Responsible Authorities;

 

 

·          

there were no representations from any interested parties;

that the flyers that are distributed from 9.30pm contain details of opening time and events, and sometimes price reductions on production of the flyer, but do not contain any images of dancers or other images which would be inappropriate for viewing by someone under the age of 21;

 

 

·          

confirmed that all the conditions that were included in the previously granted licence were to form the conditions of licence for this application.

 

Having considered all of the representations and responses to questions, Members noted that there had been no representations against the application by any of the Responsible Authorities and that there had been no representations against the application by interested parties.  Members also noted that the premises had operated without incident.
