The Licensing Officer introduced the report which set out an application for a New Premises Licence under Section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003 for Coffee Lab The Square Ltd, 21 The Square, Winchester. The premises were described as a coffee shop situated just off Winchester High Street.

 

The application was seeking the provision of regulated entertainment and the supply of alcohol (for consumption on and off the premises) between the hours of 0900 to 2200 Monday to Sunday and between the hours of 0900 to 0200 New Year’s Eve. However, the applicant had since amended their application regarding the supply of alcohol for consumption off the premises to commence at 1100 hours each day, as opposed to the 0900 hours initially proposed, in response to a representation received from ‘Other Persons’ and this proposed revision had been reflected within Section 5 of the report.

 

In respect of the application for the provision of regulated entertainment, taking the form of live and recorded music, the Sub-Committee were reminded that both live and recorded music were deregulated between the hours of 0800 hours and 2300 hours where they occur on premises licensed for the sale of alcohol. Any additional hours of live or recorded music applied for after 2300 hours would be for the Sub-Committee to consider further. The full application was set out in Appendix 1 to the report. 

 

The Sub-Committee were advised that no representations had been received by Responsible Authorities but a representative from Environmental Health was present at the meeting in an advisory capacity. Conditions were agreed between Hampshire Constabulary and the applicant during the consultation period and these were also set out in Section 5 of the report.  Five written representations had been received from ‘Other Persons’, all against the application. However, since the publication of the report, former Councillor Jackie Porter had withdrawn her written representation. The remaining four representations primarily related to the licensing objectives of the prevention of crime and disorder and the prevention of public nuisance. These representations were set out in full in Appendix 2.

 

In conclusion, the Licensing Officer advised the Sub-Committee that, if minded to approve the application, there were conditions to consider, as set out in Section 5 of the report, which the Sub-Committee could amend as appropriate to promote the licensing objectives.

 

At the invitation of the Chairperson, Mr Morris addressed the Sub-Committee on behalf of the applicant and responded to questions.

 

Mr Morris clarified that the applicant had advised that the request for off sales no longer formed part of application and had been withdrawn.

 

In addition, Mr Morris stated that whilst this was an application for a new licence, the premises had been licensed in the past. The holding company Coffee Lab Group went into liquidation, resulting in the existing premises licence for these premises lapsing. Therefore, they had to make a new  ...  view the full minutes text for item 1.

In respect of the application for the provision of regulated entertainment, taking the form of live and recorded music, the Sub-Committee were reminded that both live and recorded music were de-regulated between the hours of 0800 hours and 2300 hours where they occur on premises licensed for the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises. Any additional hours of live or recorded music applied for after 2300 hours would be for the Sub-Committee to consider further. The full application was set out in Appendix 1 to the report.

As a result, the representations of Hampshire Constabulary and Environmental Health had been withdrawn. 30 written representations had been received from ‘Other Persons’, all against the application. The representations primarily related to the licensing objective prevention of public nuisance. These representations were set out in full in Appendix 2.
