LICENSING ACT 2003 - APPLICATION FOR A STREET TRADING LICENSE - Portsmouth Road, Hindhead and Portsmouth Road, Milford pdf icon PDF 869 KB

To determine an application for a licence to trade in two designated consent streets in Hindhead and Milford.




The Licensing Committee reviews consultation feedback and determines the application of Vaporetto Ltd for a consent to trade at Portsmouth Road, Hindhead and Portsmouth Road, Milford.


Additional documents:


Portsmouth Road, Hindhead


The Sub- Committee were advised that the application in relation to the site at Portsmouth Road, Hindhead was no longer required to be heard as the applicant had a written agreement with the owners of the business at Hindhead where they trade (Andrews of Hindhead) to use their car park rather than the SCC owned land at the front of the site. For this reason Highways objection to the application would no longer be applicable and the consent for this site can be given.


Portsmouth Road Milford


The Sub-Committee considered the application in relation to the site at Portsmouth Road Milford, and during the hearing noted that the applicant proposed to reduce the trading hours sought on Saturday between 16.30 and 20.30 hours.


The Sub Committee carefully considered the representations received and the observations made during the hearing.


The Sub Committee REFUSED to grant the consent applied for on the basis that the proposal would cause undue interference or inconvenience to persons using the street. The Sub Committee was concerned in particular at the siting of the van close to the approach to the busy junction and impact on ingress/egress at the nearby Tesco Express car park together with the narrow pedestrian walkway.



Legal Advice

To consider any legal advice relating to any applications in the agenda.


Legal advice was sought during deliberations by the Sub-Committee.
