The Sub-Committee noted that the following documentation was attached to the report:-

·        Appendix A – Copy of the application

·        Appendix B – Representations submitted by the Licensing Authority

·        Appendix C – Representations submitted by the Public Health Services

·        Appendix D – Representations submitted by the Dyfed Powys Police

 

In addition to the above, the Sub Committee received, with the consent of all parties, the following additional documentation:

 

·        Plan detailing the location of the premises

·        Letter dated 11th December, 2017 from Mr A Morgan, Carmarthenshire County Council to the Applicant

·        Two E-mails dated 11th December, 2017 from the applicant to the Licensing Authority.

 

The Licensing Authority Representative referred to his written representations, as detailed within Appendix B to the report, and advised that subsequent thereto he had, together with Mr A Morgan from Environmental Health, visited the premises on the 28th November, 2017 to discuss the application with the applicant. As a consequence of that visit, Mr Morgan had written to the applicant proposing the inclusion of the following two conditions to be added to the Premises Licence, should the Sub Committee be minded to grant the application:-

 

·        Customers will only use the rear court yard area as the outside smoking area,

·        No amplified music will be played in any external areas.

 

In addition to the above conditions, Mr Morgan had also referred to the element of the application seeking consent for the playing of recorded music and had suggested to the applicant that she withdraw that element from the application on the basis the playing of background music was permitted under the deregulations afforded to licensed premises under the Licensing Act 2003. The applicant had, in an e-mail dated 11th December, confirmed her agreement to the proposed conditions and withdrawn the playing of recorded music from her application.

 

The Licensing Authority representative reported that the applicant, in an e-mail dated 11th December, had also confirmed her acceptance of the 20 licence conditions suggested by the Dyfed Powys Police. 

 

The Licensing Authority representative, in concluding, advised that whilst he was recommending the inclusion of the suggested conditions proposed by both the Public Health Services and the Dyfed Powys Police in the Premises Licence, the Sub-Committee in considering the application should have regard to an anonymous representation received objecting to the application on the basis of noise and disruption caused by loud music and inebriated customers.

 

All parties present were afforded the opportunity of questioning the Licensing Authority representative on his submission.

 

The Dyfed Powys Police representative referred to his representations detailed in Appendix D  ...  view the full minutes text for item 2.
