The Licensing (Hearing) Sub-Committee is asked to determine a variation application made under the Licensing Act 2003.

Additional documents:


The Sub-Committee was requested to determine a variation application made for Minature, 11-13 Upper High Street, Epsom under the Licensing Act 2003.

One representation had been received from a local resident with regard to the application, which had been provided to the Sub-Committee within the agenda papers for the meeting. This resident did not wish to make a verbal submission to the meeting. Two objections were received, from Surrey Police and Environmental Health.

A verbal representation was received by the Sub-Committee from the Applicant and their representative. The representation outlined the nature of the premises and the actions taken by the Applicant to address the concerns raised in the representations received.

The Applicant responded to the questions from the Sub-Committee and confirmed the following:

a)            CCTV: The Applicant informed the Sub-Committee that they had installed 16 operating CCTV cameras managed by themselves and the Door Supervisor. The Committee noted the Applicant’s representation that it would comply with reasonable requests from relevant authorities regarding the location and use of those cameras.

The Sub-Committee retired, with the legal representative, to consider the application further and then the meeting reconvened in public. The Chair announced the decision of the Sub-Committee which is detailed below.

Following consideration of the material presented in the agenda, the written and verbal representations made, and having had regard to the Statutory Guidance and the Licensing Policy of the Council, the Sub-Committee resolved to:
