In attendance and speaking at the hearing:

 

Applicant:

Mr. A. Hudson, Club Treasurer, on behalf of Reigate Ex-Service & Social Club

 

Responsible Authorities:

Ms. Eugenia Govett, Environmental Services Officer

 

Making public representations:

Mr. Philip Wiggs

The Sub-Committee was requested to determine an application for a new Club Premises Certificate for Reigate Ex-Service & Social Club, 1 Chartfield Road, Reigate.

 

Full details of the application and representations received were as set out in the report.

 

The Chair asked if any agreement had been reached in relation to any of the issues in dispute. It was reported that agreement had been reached on the conditions proposed by the responsible authority for crime and disorder, and on the conditions proposed by the responsible authority for environmental protection, with the except of the proposed condition that no more than five smokers at a time be allowed out into the smoking area after 21:00 hours.

 

The Licensing Officer presented the report and provided an outline of the application and the issues for consideration by the Sub-Committee. It was identified that the Council had received representations from the Police and Environmental Protection in relation to the licensing objectives, and that a further 31 valid representations were received from interested parties objecting to the application with regard to the licensing objectives. It was identified that as the conditions proposed by the police had been agreed by the club, no further representations in this respect were required.

 

The chairman invited the parties in attendance to make their representations to the Sub-Committee.

 

Mr. A. Hudson, on behalf of the applicant, made statements with regard to the following points:

 

·         That the club had considered representations from residents, and regretted the previous issues which had been experienced.

·         That the club had a new committee in place, and had made efforts to improve on previous shortcomings.

·         That some of the representations received may have been based on incorrect information – i.e. that some of the litter attributed to the club was due to items not sold there.

·         That the club recognised the importance of opening a dialogue with local residents.

·         That the club would establish a dedicated phone number for contact from local residents.

·         That the club would seek to have regular meetings with local residents.

·         That the club was content to abide by the proposed conditions, with the exception of the proposed condition that no more than five smokers at a time be allowed out into the smoking area after 21:00 hours. That it considered that this condition would be impractical to enforce, and that the probable alternative of persons gathering outside of the club would be outside of the ability of the club to control, and would not help to support the licensing objectives regarding noise and nuisance.

·         That they did not believe that club had received any complaints from the Council, or been the subject of any substantiated calls to the police, in the past year.

·         That they considered that, in conjunction with the proposed  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
