Adjournment

Minutes:

Following representations received from the Police, the Sub-Committee had been convened to consider an application for the transfer of a Premises Licence in respect of Bond Street Tavern, 14 Bond Street, Wolverhampton, WV2 4AS, to Mr D. Minott in the name of Lorraine and Derrick Ltd.

 

The basis of the objection raised by the Police was that Ms L. Heath, who had recently applied to be the Premises Licence Holder for the Bond Street Tavern, an application which was refused by the Licensing Sub-Committee, continued to form part of the company and continued to play an active role at the venue.  Upon the meeting opening, Mr Thomas, Solicitor for the applicant, representing Mr Minott, stated that Ms Heath was no longer a director of Lorraine and Derrick Ltd and had no involvement with the premises.

 

In light of the statement of Mr Thomas, the Chair proposed that the meeting be adjourned for 10 minutes to allow the applicant and his representative, Sergeant Lee Davies and Mrs S. Hardwick, Senior Solicitor, City of Wolverhampton Council, to establish the current position with regard to the status of the representation of the Police.

 

Resolved:     That the meeting be adjourned for 10 minutes.

 

The meeting reconvened at 10:10 am.

Minutes:

An application for the transfer of a Premises Licence in respect of Bond Street Tavern, 14 Bond Street, Wolverhampton, WV2 4AS had been received from Mr D. Minott of Lorraine and Derrick Ltd.

 

The Chair detailed the procedure to be followed.  All parties confirmed that they understood the procedure.

 

Mrs A. Chonk, Licensing Officer, provided an outline of the application.  Mr Thomas confirmed that the summary was accurate.

 

The Chair invited the applicant to present the application.

 

Mr Thomas said that prior to consideration of the matter, he had raised concerns that the objection raised by the Police, that Ms L. Heath, who had recently applied to be the Premises Licence Holder for the Bond Street Tavern but had been refused by the Licensing Sub-Committee, continued to form part of the company and continued to play an active role at the venue was invalid as Ms Heath was no longer a director of Lorraine and Derrick Ltd and had no involvement with the premises.  Mr Minott confirmed that to be correct.

 

The Chair asked Sergeant L. Davies, West Midlands Police, if he agreed with the view expressed by Mr Thomas.  Sergeant Davies asked Mr Thomas to confirm that Ms Heath no longer had any association with Lorraine and Derrick Ltd or the Bond Street Tavern.  Mr Thomas confirmed that to be correct.  Based upon Mr Thomas’s statement, Sergeant Davies withdrew the objections raised by West Midlands Police.

 

Mrs S. Hardwick, Senior Solicitor, stated that following the withdrawal of the objections raised by the Police, it was no longer within the remit of the Licensing Sub-Committee to consider the application.  The Chair therefore closed the meeting
