To consider the Chief Officer (Elections and Regulatory) that advises of an application for the grant of a premises licence for Nawaz Restaurant 51 - 53 Austhorpe Road, Cross Gates, Leeds, LS15 8BA.
The report of the Chief Officer (Elections and Regulatory) presented an application for the grant of a Premises Licence for Nawaz Restaurant, 51-53 Austhorpe Road, Cross Gates, Leeds.
Mr E Judge, Cross Gates Watch Resident’s Association was in attendance.
Prior to the hearing, all parties present agreed to the application being considered by only two members of the Sub-Committee.
The application was for the sale by retail of alcohol every day from 12:00 to 00:00. The alcohol sales are for consumption on and off the premises.
The application had received representation from West Yorkshire Police and others. The representation from West Yorkshire Police had been withdrawn and the proposal for sales for consumption off the premises had been withdrawn.
A local resident addressed the sub-committee with concerns and objections to the application. Although there was no objection to the premises having a licence to sell alcohol, there was concern that the application was for later than the permitted hours under planning permission and later than other premises that operated in the area. Reference was made to other premises and decisions of the sub-committee in relation to these. Further concern was raised regarding the application being from 12:00 as the access area was very busy during day time hours. It was felt that 17:30 would be more appropriate.
The sub-committee adjourned to consider the application, report of the Chief Officer (Elections and Regulator) along with the representations submitted in writing and this made at the hearing along with the Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy.
RESOLVED – That the application for the sale of alcohol on premises be granted as follows:
Sunday to Thursday: 12:00 to 00:00
Friday and Saturday: 12:00 to 23:00
