(Report attached)


Additional documents:


The Chief Officer (Elections and Regulatory) submitted a report that introduced an application for the grant of a premises licence, made jointly by Mr Matthew Delahunty and Mr John Lincoln for Triple Seven Pizza, Shirefit Gym, Crowther House, Ravenscliffe Road, Calverley, Pudsey, LS28 5RZ.


In summary, the application proposes the sole activity sale by retail of alcohol Friday – Sunday, 15:00 until 22:00 hours.


The application has attracted six representations from local residents compromising of five which oppose the application, and one in support.


The following were in attendance:

o  Mr John Lincoln – Applicant and Proposed Designated Premises Supervisor

o  Mr Matthew Delahunty – Applicant


The Legal Adviser to the Sub-Committee explained the procedure to be followed and the Principal Licensing Officer outlined the application.


Mr Lincoln addressed the Sub-Committee. Mr Lincoln explained that himself and Mr Delahunty were successful in raising money for a charity with making dough kits during the first lockdown. Mr Lincoln went on to say how this initially led into the business, the purchase of the van and expanding on creating DIY kits from home. It was confirmed that Triple Seven Pizza have been trading from Shirefit Gym since 7th November 2020, offering a click and collect service. Mr Lincoln explained that as their business model changed, seating was introduced for patrons to use on the premises and as that expanded, customers were requesting alcoholic beverages to enjoy with their meal. Mr Lincoln informed the Sub-Committee that Temporary Event Notices (TENs) have successfully been used, and it was confirmed that Triple Seven Pizza have only been operating 1 day per week at Shirefit Gym.


My Lincoln informed the Sub-Committee that surrounding neighbours are respected, and music comes from a small handheld speaker, positioned inside the van. The music provided a slight ambience and is lowered at 8 pm when the clean-up process begins. It was also confirmed that patrons are able to use bins on the premises, and waste is then emptied by Mr Lincoln and Mr Delahunty into larger bins on the site. Mr Lincoln was of the view that anti-social behaviour wouldn’t be attracted, due to the offer of premium food and the use of a pre-booking system.


Mr Lincoln informed the Sub-Committee that the van has been positioned in the top right-hand corner of the car park, to maintain car parking spaces. It was confirmed that there will be approximately 10 car parking spaces, with the ability to exceed this number. Additionally, it was confirmed there will be 6 benches for patrons to use. Mr Lincoln informed the Sub-Committee of an incident that had been referred to in the representations, and in relation to the gym that required the re-positioning of the van for a day, subsequently causing parking related issues. Mr Lincoln confirmed this would not happen again and was a rare incident.


Mr Lincoln confirmed it wasn’t the intention to operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday but as a small business, this provided flexibilities around the weather and  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
