    Presentation by the Licensing Officer

    The Sub-Committee was informed that this was an application for a new of a premises licence. The Sub-Committee’s attention was drawn to Chapters 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 of the Statutory Guidance and to section 5 (Policies 1, 8 and 16) of the Statement of Licensing Policy, as the ones particularly relevant to this application. The options available to the Sub-Committee were set out in paragraph 6.2 of the report on pages 24 and 25 of the agenda papers.

    The Licensing Officer confirmed:

    ·      This was an application for a new premises licence for the sale of alcohol as part of a food delivery service business.

    ·      The application could be found on pages 27-35 of the agenda papers.

    ·      A copy of the site plan could be found on page 36 of the agenda papers. 

    ·      Four objections had been received against the application. 

    ·      Two of the representations had been made by Responsible Authorities. These were from Police and Licensing.

    ·      Two other local residents had submitted objections. 

    ·      The representations could be found on pages 37-48 of the agenda papers.

    ·      A copy of the conditions could be found on page 49 of the agenda papers. 

    ·      Comments had been made by the Planning Authority and had been forwarded to the applicant for information only.


    The Chair stated that on page 48 of the agenda papers, Mr Samuel Cole had stated that the proposed use of the premises should not commence until formal planning permission had been obtained. If the Sub-Committee was minded to grant the application, then the applicant should be aware they needed to consult with the Planning Authority regarding the use of the premises and that this was a separate process.  The planning process ultimately had no bearing on the task before the Sub-Committee or the decision it would make. 



    Presentation by the applicant

    The applicant Ms Phillipa Denning and Mr Adam Denning informed the Sub-Committee that:

    ·      The business was a click and collect groceryservice for cleaning products and dry goods. Part of the business involved customers using their own packaging to carry their products out of the premises.

    ·      The company had been in business since January 2018.

    ·      Customers placed an order online and the premises had collection sessions whereby customers came with their own containers and filled those containers with stock from the business’ large boxes.

    ·      They wanted to add wine to their range of items. These were supplied by Borough Wines. The bottles would be given back to them by customers so that they could be  sent back, refilled and resealed with wine. This removed 90% of the carbon footprint for wine sold by the business and was a nice fit for the company.

    ·      All customers were known to them as customers registered online and only came to the premises at specific, designated days and times of the month.

    ·      The premises would be open for a total of 14 hours per month to allow customers to be able to collect their goods.
