The Licensing Officer introduced the matter for determination and informed the Sub-Committee that Milan Shah, Operations Coordinator, Sheermans Ltd has applied for new premises licence in respect of the premises known as Domino's Pizza, 21 High Street, Carshalton, SM5 3AP.

The application sought the grant of the following:

 

Late night refreshment during the following hours;

 

?         Sunday to Thursday - 23:00 hours to Midnight

?         Friday and Saturday - 23:00 hours to 01:00 hours the following morning

 

The Licensing Officer informed the Sub-Committee that the proposed hours of licensable activities and the hours of operation are laid out in Appendix 2.

 

The Licensing Officer explained that the applicant has advertised the application, as required, by way of a poster at the premises and by advertisement in a local newspaper and that the application had also been advertised on the Council’s website. Nine valid representations were received from Other Persons. The representations referred to matters that related to

 

?         The prevention of crime and disorder.

?         Public safety.

?         The prevention of public nuisance.

 

It was confirmed that all Responsible Authorities received a copy of the application, and no representations had been received.

 

The Licensing Officer confirmed that copies of all representations have been forwarded to the applicant and have been made available to the Sub-Committee.

The Sub-Committee then heard a submission from the applicant. The main points raised were:

·         The application is in keeping with other businesses in the area.

·         Some of the objections raised had been made by residents whose addresses are some distance from the premises, although it was noted that there had been objections from residents whose addresses were close to the premises.  Attention was drawn to the fact that objections included points which related to current concerns in the area which are not in the control of the applicant.
