NEW PREMISES LICENCE APPLICATION: Chick O’land, 17a High Street, Keynsham, Bristol BS31 1DP. pdf icon PDF 1 MB

Minutes:

Members have determined an application for a new Premises Licence and late-night refreshment at Chick – O’land, High Street Keynsham. In doing so they have taken into consideration the Licensing Act 2003, Statutory Guidance, the Council’s Policy, Human Rights Act and case law.

 

As the applicant had not attended the meeting Members had to first consider whether to continue in the applicant’s absence. Whilst Members were disappointed not to have heard from the applicant regarding his absence, they nevertheless gave him the benefit of the doubt and after some debate resolved to proceed in absence.

 

In terms of the application Members noted the premises is a restaurant/takeaway selling Pizza and burgers. Members further heard that the police had suggested several measures to mitigate concerns around the late night/early morning sale of alcohol and that the applicant had agreed to these measures.

 

In all the circumstances Members find the measures appropriate and proportionate and grant the application subject to conditions consistent with the Operating Schedule and those consistent with the agreement between the parties at Annex B and C of the report and remind the applicant that the licence is subject to review should there be any problems.

 

Authority is delegated to issue the licence.
