The Panel considered the evidence submitted by all parties as regards the review of Premises Licence.

It noted that Mr Hameed was the new Premises Licence Holder and had not been involved in the premises when the tampering with the electrical supply had taken place.

It nevertheless considered that this was a serious issue and it was concerned that this should not be allowed to happen in the future.

It agreed to add the following conditions

1. That at all times access to the electrical and gas installation including the meter cupboards by authorised officers should be possible and if such installation was secured by a lock, the key be available on the premises.

2. That at all times records of inspection and upkeep of the electrical and gas installation be kept on the premises and available for inspection by an authorised officer.

That the action in respect of the Premises Licence for Kais Kebabish be that conditions be added to the licence as outlined and a warning be placed on file that in the event of future issues the licence may be suspended or revoked.
