Application for Grant of a Premises Licence

‘Rainford X Sports & Social’, Bushy Lane, Rainford, St Helens, WA11 7LN

 

Members of the Sub-Committee were advised that an application for grant of a premises licence had been received on 24 July 2015, for the premises known as Rainford X Sports & Social, Bushey Lane, Rainford, St Helens WA11 7LN.

 

The proposed licensable activities and hours of operation were detailed in the report at paragraph 2.2.

 

Under the provisions of the Licensing Act 2003, the necessary notice was provided on the premises and in the St Helens Reporter Newspaper on 29 July 2015. As a result of this notice, two representations had been received from local residents.

 

The location plan, operating schedule and application alongside representations made by the two local residents were attached to the report at Appendices A to D respectively. Merseyside Police had submitted an additional set of conditions to be attached to the licence, alongside side the Mandatory Conditions. These had been agreed by the Applicant and were attached to the report at Appendix F.

 

Whilst presenting the report to the Sub-Committee, the Civic Events, Licensing & Land Charges Manager informed Members that the representation from Ms L Catterall, as attached at Appendix D to the report, had been withdrawn. Members noted the withdrawal of their objection.

 

Present at the Sub-Committee was the Applicant and Committee Secretary and the Representee’s representative.

 

The Applicant and Committee Secretary presented their case to Members, after which they answered questions from Members.


The Representee’s representative then presented their case to the Sub-Committee on behalf of the Representee and answered questions from Members.

 

Both parties were invited to summerise their case and then left the meeting whilst the Sub-Committee considered the matter further.

 

*           Resolved that that on the balance of probabilities the Sub-Committee was satisfied that granting the application would not undermine the Prevention of Public Nuisance and the Prevention of Crime and Disorder Licensing Objectives therefore the application for a Premises Licence at Rainford X Sports and Social be granted subject to:
