* LSC 11        

The Sub Committee considered a report that sought to determine an application for a new premises licence at 30 Brook Street, Tavistock PL19 0HE to be known as ‘Tap T’Inn’.


In his introduction, the Chairman read out the order of the process to be followed at this meeting.  The Licensing Officer proceeded to present the application and the content of the report. She explained that this was an application for a premises license and, if granted, the applicant would still need to obtain planning permission.


When questioned, it was confirmed that no objections had been received to the     application from the Police.


Address by the Applicant:


Miss Brown presented her application to the Sub Committee, stating that the          Fire Service had raised no concerns.


Whilst the maximum number that the establishment would hold would be 60,         Miss Brown felt that 30 would in fact be a more realistic number.


Miss Brown informed of the intention for quality locally made beer at £3 per bottle to be sold at the establishment.  As a result, she envisaged her clientele drinking a lower volume over the course of an evening.


The business did not intend to serve food and Miss Brown stated that there would not be a jukebox sited on the premises.  Finally, Miss Brown gave assurances that there would be an established on-site designated smoking area.


Members proceeded to ask questions of clarity of Miss Brown.


At 12 noon (once all parties were content that they had no further issues and/or questions to raise), the Sub-Committee adjourned in the presence of the Deputy Monitoring Officer to consider the application.  The Sub-Committee then reconvened at 12.20 pm and the Chairman announced the decision.)


The 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 and additional information given to us today.


It is our decision to grant this application as we are satisfied that the proposals are in line with the four licensing objectives.


Thank you all.
