Additional documents:


The Sub-Committee was asked to consider an application for a Premises Licence, submitted by Mr. Jack Bayley in respect of Bayley’s of Bromsgrove, 6 Worcester Road, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B61 7AE. The application was subject to a Hearing initially in light of three representations received from local businesses.  Members were asked to note that following discussion with the applicant that two of the representations received from local businesses were withdrawn on Tuesday 8th March 2016.  The basis of the remaining representation related to:-


·         Playing of recorded music between 08:00 a.m. and midnight.

·         The showing of films and the type of films to be shown.

·         Sale of alcohol for consumption on and off the premises between the hours of 08:00 a.m. and midnight.

·         Customers using the front of the premises as a smoking area.


The applicant was informed that Councillors B. T. Cooper and C. M. McDonald had conducted a site visit, an unannounced visit to the exterior of the premises.


The Technical Officer (Licensing), Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) introduced the report, and in doing so, informed all those present that the application submitted by Mr. Bayley was to apply for the following licensable activities:-


·         Exhibition of Films - indoors, every day, from 08:00 to 00:00

·         Playing of Recorded Music - indoors, every day, from 08:00 to 00:00

·         Sale of Alcohol - indoors, every day, from 08:00 to 00:00


The designated premises supervisor identified on the application was the applicant Mr. Jack Bayley.


The Technical Officer (Licensing), Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) drew Members’ attention to the fact that no representations had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities.


At the request of the Chairman, the applicant put forward his case in favour of his application.  Mr. Bayley highlighted to the Sub-Committee that there would be two sides to the business. 


At this point in the Hearing and with the agreement of all those present, Mr. Bayley provided Members with detailed written information on the concept of the business. 


Mr. Bayley explained that the majority of products on sale would be available to take away, as the premises did not have the capacity to cater for a large number of customers on the premises.  The main element of the business would be to sell a range of high end premium wines, champagnes and craft beers.  The second side of the business would be to provide specialist locally sourced coffees and hot drinks, hence the reason his application was from 08:00 a.m. 


Primarily both alcohol and hot drinks would be purchased to take away, to be consumed off the premises, however, customers would also have the opportunity to purchase a shot of the premium wines, champagnes and craft beers, in order to try before making a purchase. 


Mr. Bayley reiterated that the premises would have a limited number of seats and that the set-up of the shop was not that of a bar or restaurant and that he did not intend to trade as such. 


Mr. Bayley continued and explained that his application  ...  view the full minutes text for item 24/15
