Mr Kevin Jackaman (Presenting Officer) confirmed the application, advising the Sub-Committee that this was a new premises licence application submitted by Grosvenor West End Properties (Applicant Company).  He advised that the Environmental Health (EH) Services made a representation, however after agreeing conditions with the Applicant, EH had since withdrawn their representation.

Mr Thomas advised the Sub-Committee that he had spoken with the objector at some length on the telephone, and exchanged e-mail, where an example of a similar A3 premises was used, this premises was also granted planning permission without a refuse condition.
