10.      On no more than 12 occasions per calendar year the premises is permitted to provide licensable activities as detailed in the premises licence for pre-booked private events until 01:30hrs and remain open to the public until 02:00hrs. The Police must be notified in writing at least 14 days prior to such event. The Police reserve the right of veto over any such extension which can only be exercised within three days of notifying the Police and providing the Police have reasonable ground to exercise this right.


11.      Unless otherwise agreed in writing with the police, no licensable activities shall be carried out as authorised by this licence for a period of 2 weeks as a result of a suspension or revocation of any other licence for these premises following a review hearing. In such circumstances, should an appeal be lodged against a review decision, the period of 2 weeks shall begin following the conclusion of the appeal process.


The reasons for this decision are as follows:


The panel has carefully considered all the relevant representations and do not believe that there is sufficient evidence that the granting of this licence will exacerbate any existing problems.


i)              The conditions imposed, in consultation with the police, are proportionate and will act to control any potential anti-social behaviour/nuisance in keeping with the licensing objectives.


ii)             If problems do arise which can be directly related to this premises then the residents can apply for a review of the licence.
