The report contained background information on the process for determining such applications, the information to be taken into account and the circumstances in which the sub-committee could revoke a licence.
The options available to the sub-committee when considering the application were:
- To grant the licence as applied for with no additional conditions or restrictions other than those normally applied to such licences.
- To grant the licence subject to additional conditions or restrictions.
- To refuse to grant the licence.
Should the sub-committee refuse the application or impose additional terms, conditions or restrictions then the applicant may appeal to the Magistrates Court within 21 days from the date on which he was notified of the decision.
Should the Magistrates uphold the decision of the council, the applicant had further recourse to the Crown Court.
The procedure for dealing with such applications at meetings of the sub-committee had previously been circulated to members.
The applicant was not in attendance.
Resolved – That consideration of this agenda item be deferred to a future meeting to allow the applicant to attend.
