To consider the Report of the Assistant Director Growth and Regeneration to the Licensing Committee.

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Report to the Licensing Committee of the Assistant Director, Growth and Regeneration on the Adoption of the Proposed Licensing Policy 2020-2023 was presented by the Environmental Health Officer.

 

The Report advised the Licensing Committee of the outcome of the consultations regarding the review of Tamworth’s statement of licensing policy and proposed cumulative impact assessment and provided Members with an opportunity to consider the revised policy and cumulative impact assessment before its consideration by Cabinet and Council.

 

The Committee was updated on the amendments suggested by the Licensing Committee including the additional recommendation made by that Committee and to be considered by Cabinet and Council.

 

The Committee discussed aspects of the proposed policy, in particular the role of the cumulative impact assessment to guide the Council when in receipt of new applications.  It was reported that there would be rebuttable presumptions that new applications would normally be refused if representations about cumulative impact on licensing objectives were received, unless it could be demonstrated that the operation of the premises involved would not add to the cumulative impact already being experienced. 

 

The Committee also discussed the interaction of this policy with the Gambling Policy, and in particular how the law applied to less than 3 gambling machines in licensed premises.

 

RESOLVED that the Committee supported the Report with the suggested amendments.

 

(Moved by Councillor R Bilcliff and seconded by Councillor S Goodall).
