Additional documents:


The Sub-Committee considered an application for a Premise’s Licence for the Parlour Summer Garden, 68 Bridgford Road, West Bridgford as a result of objections to the application having been made.


Mr W Rathore the applicants solicitor and Mr A Fuge addressed the sub-committee to present the applicants case.


Written representations objecting to the application were read out to the sub-committee by the Licensing Officer.


Ms A Symes and Ms P Hunt addressed the sub-committee to present their objections.




The following was the unanimous decision of the sub-committee and was read out by the Chairman (Cllr Bushman) at the conclusion of the hearing.


The Sub-Committee considered the application in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003 (Hearings) and Regulations 2005 (as amended). The Sub Committee also took into consideration the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and the Human Rights Act 1998.


The Sub-Committee also had due regard for the Equality Act 2010. The Council’s statement of Licensing Policy and statutory guidance was taken into account. In reaching its decision the Sub Committee was mindful of Procedure Rules as set out in Part 4 of the Constitution, so far as they apply.


There has been a full hearing during which the Sub-Committee has considered very carefully the application.


The Sub-Committee has had regard to the four prescribed licensing objectives, in particular the prevention of nuisance and crime and disorder.


The Sub-Committee has taken into account the written report presented by Peter Harris, and the written representations from responsible authorities to the Sub-Committee from Nottinghamshire Constabulary and Environmental Health. The panel also received representations from the applicants and their representatives and objectors.


The Sub-Committee particularly considered the character of the area and the close proximity of residential premises and the impact a premises licence might have upon the area.  The committee further considered the proposals to prepare, heat and serve hot food.


The Sub-Committee has considered and is pleased to note the proposals at set out by the applicant in the management plan and the amendment proposed to the regulated activity to cease at 23:00. The committee would ask the applicant to consider, given the height of the perimeter stone wall to the erection of additional noise prevention measures as may be available.


In light of all of the above the Sub-Committee:




We are satisfied, on the balance of probabilities, that in all the circumstances a premises licence may be granted to include the conditions proposed by the responsible authorities, and subject to additional conditions.




The Sub-Committee considered very carefully the application for the Parlour Summer Garden. It has given due regard to the Licensing Act 2003, the Licensing Objectives, statutory guidance and the adopted statement of Licensing Policy.


The Sub-Committee considered the representations, both written and given orally today, by all parties. The Human Rights Act 1998, The Equality Act 2010 and The Crime and Disorder Act 1998, Section 17 have been considered whilst making the decision.

The Sub-Committee also considered the options set out in Section 18 Licensing  ...  view the full minutes text for item 2.
