Additional documents:




The Sub-Committee considered a report that sought to determine an application for a new premises licence at Gastrobus Treats, Bantham Beach Car Park, Bantham, Kingsbridge.


The Licensing Specialist introduced the report and outlined the details of the application, including the agreed conditions as set out in Appendix C of the presented report.  She also advised that as a result of concerns expressed, the Authority had also consulted with the Coastguard who had no objection to the application as it presented no greater risk than other beachfront or seafront premises.


1.      Address by the Applicant and Supporter


The Applicant and supporter outlined the designated area and confirmed that the buses would always be parked in the same place but may be turned in direction, according to the weather.  The security arrangements were explained.  In addition, the applicant set out how new stock would be transported to the buses during the day. 



(At 10.25am, the Sub-Committee adjourned in the presence of Mrs Nightingale to consider the application and reconvened at 10.35am).
