Mr Ben Williams, Barrister on behalf of Blackpool Council, referred Members to the previous item when the Sub-Committee had been advised that the renewal of the licence for the same venue had been withdrawn. As the transfer application had been made after the original expiry date of that licence, he advised that the transfer was now redundant as there was no longer a licence in force to transfer. The transfer application was therefore also deemed as being withdrawn as per the renewal.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered an application by AA Recreation 1 Ltd for a new Sexual Entertainment Venue Licence for “Dreams”, 11-13 Queen Street, Blackpool.

 

Mr Ben Williams, Barrister on behalf of Blackpool Council, reminded the Sub-Committee that it had previously considered the application at its meeting in September 2021 when it deferred a decision pending the outcome of an appeal by Pool Construction Ltd against the refusal to transfer the licence for 15-17 Queen Street. That appeal was still ongoing and was listed for a Case Management Hearing on 1 June 2022 with a date for the appeal itself after that initial hearing yet to be confirmed. Mr Williams therefore recommended that as the appeal was still ongoing, the Sub-Committee further deferred its decision until after the Case Management Hearing when a timescale for the appeal would be known.

 

Appearing before the Sub-Committee Mr Mark Newton, Director of AA Recreation 1 Ltd, acknowledged the reasons for the deferral. The Sub-Committee therefore agreed to further defer their consideration pending further information as to the appeal timescale at the Case Management Hearing on 1 June 2022.

 

Resolved:

That consideration of whether to grant a new Sexual Entertainment Venue licence for 11-13 Queen Street be deferred to a future meeting pending further information as to the appeal timescale at the Case Management Hearing on 1 June 2022 in respect of the transfer application for 15-17 Queen Street.
