RESOLVED that having considered the application for a Premises Licence for Dunscroft Garage, Broadway, Dunscroft, Doncaster, DN7 4HU and taken into account the written representations made and the evidence presented today, the steps that are appropriate to promote the Licensing Objectives, the Home Office Guidance and our Statement of Licensing Policy and noting the amendments made to the licensed premises area put forward, the Committee have decided to grant the licence in the terms set out in Appendix B as amended subject to the following conditions:-
