Application for a New Premises Licence - Peri Peri Chicken, Unit 1, 16 Dynevor Street, Merthyr Tydfil pdf icon PDF 259 KB

To consider report of the Chief Executive

Additional documents:


The Chair welcomed the applicant and their supporter, South Wales Police, Objectors and Officers to the Meeting


Simon Jones then outlined the procedure that would be undertaken for the hearing.


Rhys Furmage Licensing Officer then led the Committee in detail through the ‘Application for a New Premises Licence – Peri Peri Chicken, Unit 1, 16 Dynevor Street’ report.


He also advised that in relation to Appendix C the premises had been incorrectly identified on the Plan and gave the correct location for the Premises.


PC A Jenkins  South Wales Police then referred the Committee to Appendix D of the report and gave details of why South Wales Police would be failing in their duty to keep people safe if they supported the application and therefore had no option other than to object to the application due to the adverse effect it would have on the Licensing Objective, specifically the Prevention of Crime and Disorder and Public Safety.


PC Jenkins also gave details of the number of potential patrons that could be in the area and the application would have an adverse effect on dispersal Policies, related Crime and Disorder problems, the large number of people and the high volume of traffic together with Taxi’s and Private Hire Vehicle and drive by vehicles, the risk to the safety of people at the scene as historically there were reports of people jumping on moving vehicles.


These could not be attributed to the applicant but if the application were granted the situation could be exacerbated.


No numbers had been given for SIA staff or how duties would be carried out as there could be a 1000 people in the area.


Reference was made to the Guidance and how to promote the four Licensing Objectives and that this would compromise the Public Licensing Safety Objective.  There were no extra road traffic restrictions and there was a risk with pedestrians crossing the road.


There would be a detrimental effect due to public nuisance and referred to the nearby Care Home and the dwellings of elderly residents and that South Wales Police would be failing in their duty to keep people safe if they did not object to the application.


Barrie Davies Director Asbriplanning then referred the Committee to the letter of objection, Appendix H of the report and gave detailed objections on behalf of his Client Mr M Ongun against the proposal.


Objections were raised in relation to Crime and Disorder, anti social behaviour, Public Nuisance, Proximity of a Care Home and elderly residents, the proximity of Marsh House where it was proposed to accommodate vulnerable adults and the stress and disturbance to residents in the area.


The application would encourage people to linger in the area leading to noise and disturbance.


The Public Nuisance of littering leading to a vermin problem in the area due to discarded food waste in the car park.


Other venues in the area closed between 2.00 am and 3.00 am and to open until 4.00 am would encourage people  ...  view the full minutes text for item 417.
