Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered an application for the suspension or revocation of a Personal Licence.

 

The Sub-Committee, the Personal Licence Holder and the relevant Officers had received an agenda prior to the meeting.

 

At the commencement of the hearing, the Chair welcomed all parties to the meeting, made introductions and outlined the procedure to be followed.

 

The Licensing Officer introduced the report and outlined the salient points in relation to the application and answered questions asked of them by the Committee.

 

The Licence Holder who had made written representations in respect of the application was not in attendance at the meeting.

 

The meeting then adjourned to allow the Sub-Committee to deliberate on the application and reached a decision in private.

 

The Licensing Officers were then invited back in the meeting to be informed of the Sub-Committee’s decision.

 

RESOLVED that the Sub-Committee having considered the application for the Suspension or Revocation of a Personal Licence and having taken into account the representations made and the evidence presented today, along with the steps that are appropriate to promote the Licensing Objectives, the Home Office Guidance and our Statement of Licensing Policy, the sub-committee decided to revoke the licence.

 

The Sub-Committee felt that the Personal Licence Holders behaviour, conviction on 5th October 2020 and poor character he was not a fit and proper person and in committing the Relevant Offence that was set out under paragraph 19 of Schedule 4 of the Licensing Act 2003 and taking into consideration the promotion of the Licensing Objectives and the prevention of crime and disorder it was decided that the Personal Licence shall be revoked as of today.
