Members of the Statutory Licensing Sub Committee considered an application for Grant of a Premise Licence for Heron Foods, 11 Redhill Road, Stockton on Tees TS19 9BX.

The Chair introduced all persons who were present and explained the procedure to be followed during the hearing.

An application for grant of a premise licence had been received from Heron Foods Limited, in relation to Heron Foods, 11 Redhill Road, Stockton on Tees

The applicant had applied for a licence for the following:

Supply of Alcohol Off The Premises

Monday to Saturday 08.00 - 20.00
Sunday 10.00 - 16.00

Representation had been received from Interested Parties. These representations related to crime and disorder, protection of children from harm, public safety and public nuisance objectives. Mrs Pickering attended the meeting and was given the opportunity to make representation.


Heron's legal representative Mr Woods outlined the basis of the application to the Committee.
The premise had extensive CCTV inside and outside. The applicant had also agreed a comprehensive set of conditions to be attached to the licence, if granted. Conditions had been agreed with Trading Standards including a Challenge 25 Policy, till prompts and staff training etc. It was proposed that sale of alcohol would cease at 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 4 p.m. on a Sunday. Discussion took place on whether high strength beers and ciders would be sold at the premise. The applicant confirmed that he would agree to a condition relating to restriction of high strength beers and ciders if the Committee were minded to attach this.

The Environmental Health Officer confirmed that he had no objection to the application and had agreed a number of conditions to be attached to the licence if granted. Details of these were contained within the main report.

The Committee had regard to the written submissions made by Mr and Mrs Pickering and Mr Harrison which were contained within the Committee report.

The Committee also heard oral evidence from Mrs Pickering. Mrs Pickering summarised her concerns over the application and stated that she lived close to the shops and that there had been many problems with youths and underage drinking.

Members had regard to the Committee papers, and to the oral submissions made at the meeting.

Having carefully considered those matters brought before them and in reaching their decision, the Members had full regard to both the provisions of the Licensing Act 2003 (as amended by the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006), the Guidance Issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 (as amended) and the Council's Licensing Policy.

The Committee were of the view that the conditions which had been proposed as being attached to the licence would ensure that the licensing objectives would not be undermined.

After considering all of the evidence the Committee resolved to grant the application as follows:-

•Supply of alcohol off the premises:

Monday to Saturday - 08:00 to 20:00
Sunday - 10:00 to 16:00

•Opening hours of the premise:

Monday to Saturday - 08:00 to 20:00
Sunday - 10:00 to 16:00

The Committee noted that the conditions as agreed with Environmental Health and Trading Standards would be attached to the licensing along with those detailed within the applicants operating schedule.

The Committee also resolved to attach the following conditions:-

•No super strength beers, lagers, ciders or spirit mixtures of 5.5% ABV (Alcohol By Volume) or above shall be sold at the premises.
