At the commencement of the hearing, the Sub-Committee heard applications from 3 of those who had made representations asking for an adjournment. These were centred around the fact that large amounts of material had been submitted in the few days before the hearing. What the Sub-Committee was able to ascertain was that most of the material had largely been submitted and that the additional material was in fact largely a collation of the material already submitted. The Sub-Committee therefore determined to proceed.
The Sub-Committee considered an application for a new Premises Licence in respect of Yorkshire Wildlife Park (YWP), Hurst Lane, Auckley, Doncaster, DN3 3HQ.

Subsequent to the despatch of the agenda papers, additional information from Yorkshire Wildlife Park and persons making representations, had been circulated to Members of the Sub-Committee and all relevant parties prior to the meeting.
