RESOLVED that the Licensing Sub-Committee having considered the application for a new Premises Licence for Man Cave, Rear of 98 Gattison Lane, New Rossington, Doncaster, DN11 0NR, and having taken into account the written representations made and the evidence presented at the meeting, the steps that were appropriate to promote the Licensing Objectives, the Home Office Guidance and the Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy, decided to grant the Licence in the terms set out in Appendix B, subject to the following Condition:-


1.  A maximum of 10 people, including staff to be in the premises at any one time.


The Sub-Committee has made its decision for the following reasons:-


The Applicant is an experienced licence holder.  The Premises are to be a hairdresser/barber and offering beauty treatments, and want to be able to sell alcohol to customers to drink whilst having treatments and to take alcohol home.  The Applicant will be offering packages of treatments to include a drink as well as allowing drinks to be purchased separately.  The Sub-Committee noted that the CCTV will be in operation covering the whole of the premises.


The Applicant stated they have deliberately not asked for any other licensable activities than the sale of alcohol to minimise any noise nuisance.  The Applicant does not intend to be open until 10pm every night but rather anticipate the normal hours will be 9am to 4pm from Tuesday to Saturday.  The Applicant is asking for these hours to allow the option to be open later and on a Sunday and Monday.  The Sub-Committee noted the premises is open form 8am, but the Applicant made it clear that no alcohol would be sold until 9am.


The Applicant submits the Premises are in a row of shops and there is at least one premises who has a Premises Licence which permits late night refreshment after 11pm.  The Applicant suggests that this would cause more noise and foot fall.  The Sub-Committee does not agree that the location of the premises is similar to the other shops in the area.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 2.
