The Licensing Authority received an application for a Premises Licence for the provision of late night refreshment to be granted under the Licensing Act 2003 in relation to Dixy Chicken, 41 Blackburn Street, Radcliffe, M26 1NR.

 

No representations had been received from a Responsible Authority but one (1) had been received from an interested party, namely a member of the public. 

 

The Applicant in respect of the licence for the above premises is Adeel Khalid. 

 

The Applicant had complied with all the necessary procedural requirements laid down by the Act.

 

Representations were received within the appropriate period by the Licensing Authority from the one interested party.

 

The representation was contained within the written submissions provided in the report to the Sub-Committee.

 

All documentary evidence provided with the agenda pack comprising the application, the report and representation were served on all parties in advance of the hearing.

 

The operating schedule was as follows:

 

Late Night Refreshment – Indoors and Outdoors

 

Monday to Sunday                           23:00 to 01:00

 

Hours open to the Public

 

Monday to Sunday                         11:00 to 01:00

 

The conditions contained in the operating schedule submitted by the Applicant were contained at Appendix 1 of the report.

 

The Licensing Officer presented the report and noted that Appendix 2 of the agenda pack contained information in relation to the interested party who had made a representation to this application, although they were not in attendance at the meeting.

 

It was reported that an additional document had been circulated to Members of the panel prior to the hearing from Mr Tony Dales who was representing the Applicant. This contained a due diligence folder to be stored in the take away, a refusals log book and details of the granted planning permission for the premises.

           

Mr Dales then provided the meeting with an overview of the business which supported the 4 licensing objectives. He stated that the store had been open for 12 months and there had been no reported complaints or problems in the past year and that there was no evidence to suggest an extension in the opening times would cause any new issues. He went on the explain that staff would also be trained by him to deal with customers which included completion of a refusals register, signs would also be displayed at exit points to the premises requesting that noise levels be kept to a minimum, daily litter clearances would be in operation and a zero tolerance policy on drugs and drinking. He pointed out that no representations had been made by the responsible authorities.

Mr Khalid added that the licence would make his business more competitive in line with other take aways in the local area and he would listen to any community concerns. He added that no complaints or other issues had been reported in the past 12 months.
