b. The premises have held various premises licences over the years and has had a history of note as detailed from page 1 of the report.
c. The current PLH is Celtic Cross Ltd and has been PLH since 3 June 2015. Mr Mark Walsh and Miss Eimear Walsh are the company directors. Mark Walsh was the DPS until recently and now it is Eimear Walsh.
d. The review application has been submitted by the Licensing Authority and seeks to amend conditions and reduce licensable activities times in order to support the prevention of crime and disorder, prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm licensing objectives.
e. This is in response to several reports that the PL has been unable to control the noise and dispersal of customers leaving the premises at closing time causing anti-social behaviour (ASB). Local residents have reported their concern and that this affecting them.
f. The conditions sought have continued to be mediated upon between the Licensing Authority and the Premises Licence Holder (PLH) and the current position can be seen in Annex 8 which was circulated on Tuesday 5 October 2021.
g. Those conditions not agreed require the Licensing Sub-Committee (LSC) to decide to:
· Keep the original conditions or modify the conditions either as sought by the Licensing Authority, referred to as the ‘B’ conditions.
· Or those conditions proposed by the Licensing Authority, which are referred to as the ‘C’ conditions in Annex 8.
· Or a ‘D’ option, depending on mediation.
· Or there may be a new condition the LSC may deem appropriate.
h. The position of changes to licensable activities can be seen from page 57 of the report. The only times for licensable activities Not agreed between the Licensing Authority and PLH and therefore only the matters that need determining by the LSC are:
· That the Licensing Authority seek the premises to be open from 9:00am – 11:30pm – Fri – Sat. The licensing hours currently allows the premises to be open to 12:30am.
· The Licensing Authority seeks alcohol sales from 10:00am – 11:00pm – Fri – Sat (reduced hours). The licence currently allows alcohol sales from 10:00am – midnight.
Effectively an hour reduction on both licensable activities.
i. The review no longer seeks to suspend the licence, as a minor variation application to amend the plan, has been submitted. The full review application can be seen in Annex 2 from page 19 of the report.
