Minutes:

The Chairman summarised the procedure to be followed for the hearing and those present were introduced.  The Senior Licensing and Enforcement Officer said that an application had been received on 6 April 2020 for a new premises licence at Hadham Brewery Limited at Unit 6b, Hadham Industrial Estate, Church End, Little Hadham, SG11 2DY.

 

The Sub-Committee was advised that the application had been varied on 14 May 2020 to include the sale of alcohol for consumption on and off the premises.  This amendment had removed the late night refreshment and all regulated entertainment from the application.  The amended hours were as detailed in paragraph 3.4 of the submitted report.

 

The Senior Licensing and Enforcement Officer said that the Sub-Committee should ensure that the application, if granted, would promote and not undermine the Licensing objectives.  Any action taken by the Sub-Committee should be appropriate or proportionate in terms of what Members were seeking to achieve.

 

Members asked a number of questions of the Officer.  Before the applicant was able completely present his case in support of the application, the hearing was adjourned at 14:55 due to a Member of the Sub-Committee being unable maintain a virtual presence on Zoom.

 

RESOLVED – the Sub-Committee hearing be adjourned.
