Members were required to determine an application for variation of a licence for the premise Blackwell's Butchers Limited. 122 High Street, Norton, Stockton on Tees.

This application was originally considered at a Licensing Committee Hearing on Wednesday 14 June 2017 when the applicant and committee members agreed to defer the hearing for an amended version of the application to be considered

The application for variation had been received from Blackwell's Butchers Limited. 122 High Street, Norton, Stockton on Tees.

The proposed variation was for the following:

• Add a condition to the premises licence confirming the maximum number of diners attending a pre-planned event will be 20

• Add a condition to the premises licence restricting the number of pre-planned events held on the premises to two a week.

• Vary the opening hours of the premises to
Monday to Saturday: 07:00 - 22:30
Sunday: 11:00 - 20:30

• Vary the hours of on sales
Monday to Tuesday: 09:00 - 21:00
Wednesday to Saturday: 09:00 - 22:00
Sunday: 11:00 - 20:00

• Vary the hours of off sales
Monday to Tuesday: 09:00 - 21:00
Wednesday to Saturday: 09:00 - 22:00
Sunday: 11:00 - 20:00

Representations had been received from two interested parties, including a reply from Mr Bosomworth who was also in attendance at the Licensing Committee hearing on Wednesday 14 June 2017.

A representation had initially been received from Cleveland Police but following discussion the applicant had agreed to vary the application and agreed to conditions being attached to the licence so the representation was withdrawn.
The Chair introduced all persons who were present and explained the procedure to be followed during the hearing.

The Applicant Anna Blackwell attended the meeting and was given the opportunity to make representation.

The Committee considered the report, the application and the representations which had been received.

The Committee were mindful that any evidence to persuade the Committee to refuse or vary the application had to be linked to the licensing objectives. The Committee had regard to the statutory guidance under Section 182 of the Licensing Act and to the Councils Own Statement of Licensing Policy.

The Committee had regard to the application and noted that it appeared that a reasonable compromise had been reached which addressed any initial concerns.

After giving due consideration to all relevant information the Committee approved the amended variation application as detailed.
The Committee also attached the following conditions: -

• A log/register shall be maintained and kept at the Premise by the Premise Licence Holder or their representative and must include details of any pre-planned events which are held at the premise

• Details of any pre-planned event must be entered into the log/register prior to the event taking place.
