Apologies for absence, Substitutions, Declarations of Interest and Dispensations
The Minutes of the meeting of the Licensing Sub-Committee held on 20th November 2023 are submitted for approval as a correct record.
Resolved - That the Minutes be received and approved as a correct record.
To consider a request for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) in relation to Biggins Farm, Green Haworth, Accrington, at a hearing to be held under Section 105(2)(a) of the Licensing Act 2003 following an objection from the Council’s Environmental Protection Officer.
Three appendices are attached to the report, as follows:
Appendix 1 Submitted Temporary Event Notices
Appendix 2 Representation received
Appendix 3 Licensing Authorities Conduct of Hearing Procedures
The applicant has been invited to attend the meeting and been advised of their right to be represented.
Recommended - That in accordance with Section 105(2) of the Licensing Act 2003, the Sub-Committee should consider the representation and must take such of the following steps as it considers necessary for the promotion of the licensing objectives:
(i) impose one or more of the existing licence conditions on the TEN (insofar as such conditions are not inconsistent with the event). Members should note that this option isn’t available on this occasion as the premises does not hold a licence and there are therefore no existing conditions.
(ii) determine that the event would undermine the licensing objectives and serve a counter notice
(iii) allow the licensable activities to go ahead as stated in the notice.
The matter for decision, therefore, is which of these steps should be taken.
