LICENSING SUB-COMMITTEE DECISION
The Sub Committee have considered the licensing objectives, including the prevention of public nuisance objective and they accept the police objection notice(s) & the Environmental Health objection to the Temporary Event Notice(s) dated 3rd December 2018.
The reason for Sub Committee’s decision is that there was substantial evidence presented by GMP and the Environmental Health Team to demonstrate that there have been a significant number of complaints relating to the premises which have caused a significant public nuisance. The Sub Committee felt that the Temporary Event Notices would likely cause further public nuisance.
The Sub Committee have therefore determined to issue a counter notice to the Temporary Event Notice(s) pursuant to section 105 of the Licensing Act 2003.
SUB-COMMITTEE’S REASONS FOR REACHING ITS DECISION
The Sub Committee have considered the grounds of the Police Objection Notice(s) & the Environmental Health objection and the nature of the event(s) as outlined in the Temporary Event Notice(s).
The promotion of the prevention of public nuisance objective has been considered.
The Sub Committee noted the police concerns regarding numerous complaints that have been received and are continuing to be received by Greater Manchester Police in respect of:
•noise nuisance from the premises and
• unofficial closing time of 2.00 a.m.
Having considered the evidence the Sub Committee consider that it is necessary for the promotion of the prevention of public nuisance objective to issue a Counter Notice.
