DECISION NOTICE - LICENSING ACT 2003 SUB-COMMITTEE

 

APPLICATION FOR A PREMISES LICENCE AT THE CO-OPERATIVE FOOD, OUNDLE ROAD, PETERBOROUGH, PE2 7DF

 

15 MAY 2015

 

This Decision Notice refers to the application for a premises licence for the Co-operative store at, Oundle Road, Peterborough, PE2 7DF.

 

We have considered the representations made to us today and in writing in objection to the application by other persons.  The objections outlined included:

 

  • Residents believe that granting an alcohol licence in the residential area and near to a children’s play area would lead to street drinking in the area and associated anti-social behaviour;
  • If a licence is granted there would be an increase in alcohol related incidents which the overstretched Police resources would have to deal with; and
  • An increase in littering in the vicinity of the premises.

 

The Sub Committee also gave consideration to the conditions (appendix 1), proposed by the applicant, which included:

 

·         The CCTV system coverage, availability, incident logging and storage;

·         The premises operation of a proof of age scheme, such as a Challenge 25,

·         Burglar alarm system;

·         Panic button system for staff to utilise in the case of an emergency;

·         Complaints procedure arrangements, such as availability in store and upon request.

·         Training in relation to age restricted products and in particular the sale of alcohol;

·         An age cashier till prompt system will be utilised at the premises in respect of age restricted products;

·         A refusals register arrangement to be maintained; and

·         Appropriate fire safety and health and safety regulation arrangements to be in place at the store.

 

The options available to the Committee were:

 

·         Decide to grant the licence in the same terms as it was applied for;

·         Decide to grant the licence, but to modify or add conditions (to promote the licensing objectives); or

·         Decide to refuse to grant the licence.

 

The Sub Committee, is satisfied that the Applicant’s operating schedule is sufficiently robust to address the concerns of the local residents who made representations.

 

We therefore GRANT the licence for the premises, known as Co-operative Food, Oundle Road, Peterborough, PE2 7DF, as applied.

 

Any party in objection to the decision may appeal to the Peterborough Magistrates Court within 21 days of receiving this formal notice at:

 

Peterborough Court House, Bridge Street, Peterborough, PE1 1ED. Tel No. 0845 3100575. There is a fee to pay.
