Additional documents:


The Licensing Sub-Committee considered the Application for a Premises Licence at 89 Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon, CR0 6PT and the representations received as contained in the report of the Executive Director ‘Place’ as well as the additional information provided by the Applicant via email on 18 December 2018.


The Sub-Committee also considered the oral representations of the Metropolitan Police, in particular that they confirmed that they were satisfied that the amended proposed conditions (attached) offered by the Applicant would prevent crime and disorder. They were also of the view that the amendments would result in a food led and family restaurant, rather than a Club.


Further, the Council’s Licensing officer confirmed that Councillor Jerry Fitzpatrick (ward councillor) had withdrawn his comments given the Police were satisfied with the new conditions offered.


The Sub-Committee agreed to the amended times of the licensable activities as set out in 1.2 of Appendix A. Also, that that the relevant conditions in the Application and the new conditions offered by the Applicant today (attached) would be included on the Licence.


The Sub-Committee, having reference to the licensing objectives under the Licensing Act 2003 and the Council Licensing Policy the Sub-Committee RESOLVED to Grant this application with the Licence conditions mentioned below.
