Application for Variation of a Premises Licence [20/03272/LIPV]
11 Great Cumberland Place
Represented by Thomas O’Maoileoin – Thomas & Thomas
Cumulative Impact Area
Bryanston & Dorset Square
Summary of Application
This was an application for a variation of a premises licence under the Licensing Act 2003 (“The Act”) to extend the sale of alcohol off the Premises for the Hours and period specified below. The Premises currently operate as a general convenience shop and is not located within an area of Cumulative Impact Area. The premises have had the benefit of a licence, Licence number 19/08177/LIPRW from 2005 which is still currently in place.
The Applicant originally sought to vary the terminal hour for the Sale by Retail of Alcohol for consumption off the premises from 23:00 on Monday to Saturday and 22:30 on Sunday to 02:00 on Monday to Sunday. The Applicant also sought to remove condition 32. The application was amended prior to the hearing and the Applicant reduced the extension of hours sought for the off sale of alcohol from 23:00 to 02:00 hours Monday to Saturday and 22:30 on Sunday to 02:00 on Monday to Sunday to the terminal hour of 00:00 Monday to Saturday. The Applicant also confirmed that the extension of hours shall be time limited for a period of one year starting on 28th May 2020 and ending on 27th May 2021; and confirmed that the proposed deletion to condition 32 of the licence was not now being pursued.

· PC Bryan Lewis (representing Metropolitan Police)
· Richard Brown (representing Mr Guy Austin from The Marylebone Association)
Brief summary of issues raised by objectors
· The extension of hours may cause an increase in Public Nuisance in the area.
· The removal of condition 32 may cause an increase in Public Nuisance in the area.
· The extension of hours posed a substantial risk and would not promote the licensing objectives, namely the prevention of crime and disorder.
· The store is situated very close to Marble Arch and it would be inappropriate for alcohol to be available easily outside Core Hours in this location.
There is no policy to refuse this application as the Premises are not situated in an area of Cumulative Impact. The application must, therefore, be determined on merit with ... view the full minutes text for item 2.
