APPLICATION FOR A PREMISES LICENCE FOR MUZZY KEBAB, PITCH 30 ORANGE GROVE, BATH BA1 1LP pdf icon PDF 5 MB

Minutes:

Applicant: Mehmet Yilmaz

 

The applicant confirmed that he understood the procedure to be followed for the hearing.

 

The Senior Public Protection Officer presented the report.

 

The applicant stated his case. He said that he would like to extend his business opportunities by being able to offer food to people who go out in the evening. Asked by the Chair why he thought that his operation would not conflict with the licensing objectives, he said that he had been in the business for eighteen years. He had worked for four years in Bristol city centre and knew how to deal with difficult and drunk customers. Asked by a Member about cleaning the area around the pitch, he replied that he would clean the area every day after close of business. He confirmed that he would use signage on the van to encourage customers to keep noise down and be mindful of residents, and he had a very quiet generator. He was not seeking authorisation for Late Night Refreshment on Fridays and Saturdays. On these days, which he said were by far his busiest, he would trade for the hours specified in the Street Trading Licence for the pitch, which was first granted in 2002.

 

Following an adjournment the Sub-Committee RESOLVED to grant the application.

 

 

Decision and reasons

 

Members have determined an application for a new Premises Licence for Muzzy Kebab, Pitch 30, Orange Grove, Bath, BA1 1LP. In doing so, they have taken into consideration the Licensing Act 2003, Statutory Guidance, the Council’s Policy, Human Rights Act 1998 and case law.

 

Members are aware that the proper approach under the Licensing Act is to be reluctant to regulate in the absence of evidence and must only do what is appropriate and proportionate in the promotion of the licensing objectives based on information put before them. Members noted that an application must be considered on its own merits.

 

The Applicant

 

The applicant indicated in his application that the premises licence is sought in relation to his mobile catering unit which will sell hot take away food and soft drinks. As he wishes to provide late night refreshment from 2300 to 0300 Monday to Thursday inclusive and from 2300 to 0100 on Sunday, he seeks a premises licence.

 

The application provided that there would be no alcohol sold from the premises, signs would be prominently displayed requesting customers refrain from making excessive noise; all packaging would be paper or card; all drinks would be sold in aluminium cans or plastic cups; a litter bin would be provided for use by customers; and the area adjacent to the unit would be regularly cleaned.

 

Mr Yilmaz explained to Members that he has 18 years’ experience of this kind of work and has 4 years’ experience of such in Bristol City Centre trading from 6pm to 6am. He explained to members that he feels able to deal with any noisy customers and that he would tidy any litter from around the pitch every day that  ...  view the full minutes text for item 20.
