Decision:

 

That the application for a Premises Licence in respect of Broadsands Beach Kiosk, Broadsands Beach, Paignton be approved subject to the following additional conditions:

 

i)             Where alcohol is supplied in a glass bottle, the premises must transfer that alcohol into a plastic or paper cup where off-sales are intended;

 

ii)         At the end of each operational day, a member of staff must conduct a sweep of the immediate and surrounding area to collect and dispose appropriately, any waste attributable to the premises;

 

iii)        That the premises shall situate prominently, signage to request that patrons dispose their waste in the receptacles provided by the premises.

 

That the following condition on the application, under the heading of ‘The Prevention of Public Nuisance’ be amended to:

 

‘Adequate waste receptacles will be provided by the premises, for customer use and will be emptied when required and stored safely by the premises until disposal’.

In carefully considering all the written and oral representations, Members unanimously resolved to grant the application, having been satisfied that the additional conditions would alleviate the concerns raised by Interested Parties and promote the Licensing Objectives.

Members also gave careful consideration with regards to off-sales and the potential concerns around waste and the serving of alcohol in glass bottles which Members too had concerns with but after thorough deliberation and noting the Applicant’s previous experience and track record, Members were satisfied that these concerns could be alleviated by conditions.
