We are required to make our decisions regarding the granting of licences utilising our policy and having regard to four licensing objectives.
The certificate requested will be granted (possibly subject to certain mandatory conditions regarding matters such as the sale of alcohol, door supervisors or exhibition of films etc. or conditions consistent with the operating schedule unless representations have been made by a responsible authority or other 'interested parties'.
An 'interested party' includes:
note: this does not include either a local MP or the local authority
- Any person living in the vicinity of the premises and/or any body representing such persons
- Any person involved in a business in the vicinity and/or a body representing such persons
Representations can be made with regard to the likely effect of the grant of the licence on the promotion of the licensing objectives and / or with regard to the identity of the premises supervisor. However, representations (other than those from the responsible authorities) will not be considered relevant where the licensing authority considers them to be frivolous or vexatious.
The Council's licensing committee will consider these representations with regard to the licensing objectives and may, on this basis, either decide to
- Grant the Certificate, subject to any appropriate conditions
- Grant the Certificate but exclude one or more of the licensable activities
- Reject the application.
