DECLARATIONS OF PERSONAL INTEREST.
There were no declarations of interest.
The Sub Committee adjourned at County Hall, Carmarthen at 9.35 a.m. and reconvened on site at 10.15 a.m., in order to view the above premises where it was afforded the opportunity of examining both the internal and external facilities and the location of objectors’ properties. Following conclusion of the site visit, the Sub Committee reconvened in the Chamber, County Hall, Carmarthen, at 11.30 a.m. to consider the application.
The Legal Services Manager briefed all present on the procedure for the meeting.
The Sub Committee was advised that an application had been received from Llanelli Wanderers RFC for a premises licence in respect of the above premises to allow:-
Supply of Alcohol & Recorded Music – Wednesday to Sunday 12:00-23:30,
Opening Hours Wednesday to Sunday 12:00-00:00,
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 Dyfed Powys Police
Appendix D - representations submitted by the Public Health Services
Appendix E - representations submitted by other persons.
The Sub-Committee, with the agreement of all parties, was circulated with copies of additional documentation which included amendments to the conditions proposed by the Councils’ Public Health Services, a plan detailing the location of objectors’ properties in relation to the application premises/site together with an e-mail from the applicant amending the application to exclude the playing of recorded music beyond 23.00 hours. In addition, the Sub Committee also received additional correspondence from one of the objectors to the proposed application, which had previously been provided to the applicant and the responsible authorities.
The Licensing Authority representative referred to his representations, as detailed within Appendix B to the report, and recommended that should the Sub-Committee be minded to grant the application then the suggested conditions proposed by both the Dyfed Powys Police and Public Health Services (as amended) be applied to the licence
The Licensing Authority Representative also referred to the applicant’s withdrawal of the element of the application relating to the playing of recorded music up to 23:30 hours. He informed the Sub Committee that following amendments to the Licensing Act and the Deregulation of Regulated Entertainment any premises with an alcohol on-licence had an automatic right to play live and recorded music between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 11.00 p.m. without it appearing on the premises licence or having any conditions attached to that licence. However, should the playing of music give rise to a nuisance, the legislation provided for an application to be made for review of that right.
All parties were afforded the opportunity of questioning the Licensing Authority representative on the representations made.
The Dyfed Powys Police representative referred to his representations as detailed within Appendix C to the report and requested the13 suggested conditions detailed therein be applied to the licence as being both necessary and proportionate to promote the four licensing objectives. Those had been agreed with the applicant.
