Application for a New Premises Licence at Springfield Farm Shop, East Charleton, Kingsbridge TQ7 2AR pdf icon PDF 84 KB

Additional documents:




The Sub-Committee considered a report that sought to determine an application for a new premises licence at Springfield Farm Shop, East Charleton, Kingsbridge.


The Licensing Specialist introduced the report and outlined the details of the application (as stated in the application form at Appendix A of the presented agenda report). 


In addition, the Licensing Specialist specifically outlined the amendments that were illustrated at Appendix B of the presented agenda report that had been agreed between the applicant and the Police. 


The attention of the Committee was also drawn to the three letters of objection that had been received during the consultation process (as outlined at Appendix C of the presented agenda report).  Following the agreed amendments between the applicant and the Police, it was noted that one letter of objection had since been withdrawn.


In discussion, the Sub-Committee was of the view that the majority of points raised in the letters of objection (e.g. competition) were not relevant to the four licensing objectives.


(At 2.45pm, the Sub-Committee then adjourned in the presence of Mrs Reece to consider the application and reconvened at 2.55pm).



1.     The Decision


In announcing the Sub-Committee decision, the Chairman read out the following statement:


“We have considered the application for a new premises licence.


We have considered the Statement of Licensing Policy, the government guidance and our obligations that relate to the promotion of the licensing objectives.


We have read carefully the written representations from all parties, plus additional statements from persons here today.  We have also considered the additional conditions proposed by the Police and accepted by the Applicant.


It is our decision to grant this application, subject to inclusion of the additional conditions requested by the Police. We have determined the changes to be appropriate to achieve the licensing objectives and are satisfied that the conditions agreed with the Police properly address these objectives.”
