Report No. 167/2019 was received from the Strategic Director for Places.

 

Terri Martin, Strategic Regulatory Officer at Peterborough City Council introduced the report the purpose was to consider the revised policy and responses received during consultation and amendments made in consideration of those responses.

 

During discussion the following points were noted:

 

      i.        It was questioned why the decision on whether a representation is irrelevant, frivolous, vexatious etc was given to officers in all cases. Terri Martin stated that it was delegated to officers as this is consistent with Section 182 guidance, to ensure there was no political bias with representations.

    ii.        If premises with a license were to cause problems and public and/or Responsible Authorities have concerns that the objectives are being undermined, the?y can apply for a review of the licence.  This would allow the Committee to reconsider the licence and take appropriate action.  

 

RESOLVED

 

That the Committee:

 

      i.        CONSIDERED the revised Policy and responses received during consultation and amendments made in consideration of those responses; and

    ii.        RECOMMENDED to Council to adopt the post consultation revised Statement of Licensing Policy.
