The Licensing Committee considered the Application for the Renewal of a Sex Establishment (Sex Shop) Licence at Private Shop, 20c Selsdon Road, South Croydon, CR2 6PA and the representations received as contained in the report of the Executive Director ‘Place’.


The Committee also considered the oral representations of the applicant through its representative, the Committee also considered the objection submitted against the application by the local resident.


The Committee, having made reference to the Schedule 3 of Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 and the Council’s Licensing Policy, the Committee have RESOLVED to GRANT the application for a premises licence at Private Shop, 20c Selsdon Road, South Croydon, CR2 6PA.
