The Licensing Enforcement Officer presented the report, Members, the Licence Holder and her Representative were given the opportunity to ask questions of the Officer.

 

The Licence Holder and her Representative were invited to address the Sub-Committee and responded to questions from Members and Officers.

 

After all parties were given the opportunity to make a closing statement, the Licence Holder was advised that Members of the Sub-Committee would retire to deliberate the application in private and the Licence Holder would be notified of their decision later in the day.

 

The Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the application in private at 2.05 pm.

 

Resolved: That the Licence Holder be issued with a twelve-month written warning and advised to attend the next appropriate safeguarding course and to familiarise herself with the terms of the Council’s policy.
