DECISION OF THE LICENSING PANEL REGARDING APPLICATION FOR NEW PREMISES LICENSE - HENRY CORT COMMUNITY COLLEGE, HILLSON DRIVE, FAREHAM

 

The Panel has considered very carefully the application for a premises licence at Henry Cort Community College, Hillson Drive, Fareham.  It has paid due regard to the Licensing Act 2003, statutory guidance and the adopted statement of policy.  Human rights legislation has been borne in mind whilst making the decision.

 

All representations, both written and given orally today, have been taken into consideration.

It was noted that no representations had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities.

 

In light of all of the above, the Panel has determined to grant the application in the terms sought, save for the fact that a licence is not required for the hours sought for late night refreshments.

 

REASONS

The Panel did consider very carefully the written representations from concerned residents.  Most residential concern related to late night noise or noise generally from amplified sound at the premises.

 

The Panel accepted legal advice that other concerns- including parking, traffic, effects on wildlife etc. cannot be taken into account.

 

The premises have had the benefit of a premises licence since 2005 allowing all of the licensable activities now sought save for the sale of alcohol.

 

The Panel heard from the applicant that comedy nights, no more than twice a month, are anticipated.  These events will be limited to 200 attending and will be ticket only events i.e. not open to the wider general public.

 

In light of this proposed activity the Panel determined that it would not be appropriate to limit the licence or refuse the licence at this time.

 

Residents should, however, be reassured that there is the ability to commence a review of the premises licence at any time where evidence shows that issues arise and are relevant to the licensing objectives.

 

There is a right of appeal to the Magistrates Court for all parties. Formal notification of the decision will set out that right in full.
