Jo Baber Licensing Officer then led the Committee in detail through the report.
P C Jon Roberts then referred in detail to the initial representations made by South Wales Police as outlined in Appendix C of the report and advised that this was no reflection on the applicant and the application but was in relation to Crime and Disorder, Public Nuisance and the Licensing Act 2003.
P C Roberts referred to concerns of the adverse effect on Licensing Objectives and local residents and to the Mediation Meeting that had taken place on 9 August 2002 regarding the application.

In reference to the condition that there must be an operational plan for the event the applicant advised that he would agree to Risk Assessments.
Mr Owen referred to Stewards and Security Staff and the numbers required in relation to the type of event – e.g a Pantomime or a Motohead Tribute Band and the need to be relative for the type of event and that a Risk Assessment per event was a good option together with the use of plastic glasses depending on the event.
