Application by Mrs Fatma Kaya-Cifci for a Premises Licence – Harnham Local, 1 Harnham Road, Salisbury, SP2 8JG.


The Licensing Officer introduced the purpose and scope of the application, the premises to which it related and the key issues for consideration, including:


·         The Application was for a premises license for the sale by retail of alcohol (off sales) for the hours of 7.00am – 11.00pm Monday to Sunday.

·         Eleven relevant representations had been received, ten objecting to the application and one in support.

·         No representation had been made by any of the statutory Authorities.


In accordance with the procedure detailed in the agenda, the Applicant, the Responsible Authorities and those who had made a Relevant Representation were given the opportunity to address the Sub Committee.


Key points raised by Mr Hudson of Dorset Licensing on behalf of the Applicant were:


·         The premises was a small store which would stock a typical range of goods. Over the past 110 years the premises had been used mainly as a grocery or general store and had also served as a post office. Only in the past 10 years the premises had not operated as such and had been used as a furniture design store.

·         Both of the applicant and her husband had several years experience in the sale of alcohol.

·         The applicant had operated other stores around the City and had not experienced any problems relating to anti social behaviour in the past.

·         The relevant Authorities had not found anything to cause them to make representations.

·         The applicant had been in contact with the Crime Prevention Officer and would continue to work with him.

·         CCTV would be in operation in the store, as per the condition detailed on page 28 of the agenda.

·         High value goods such as spirits and tobacco would be kept behind the counter.

·         Steps had been put forward to promote the Licensing Objectives.

·         Staff responsible for selling alcohol would all recieve training and be over 18 years of age.

·         The till would alert the staff when goods requiring ID were scanned.

·         The operating hours applied for were 7 – 11pm 7 days of the week, however flexibility would allow the applicant to open less depending on the level of trade.

·         This would be a family based store; it was in the best interest of the applicant to monitor any anti social behaviour.

·         There was a long history of a shop at this location, it would be a benefit to the community.

·         The store was likely to be closed by the time people walked back from town after the pubs closed on Friday and Saturday evenings.


Key points raised by those who made a Relevant Representation were:


Cllr Ian Tomes:

·         Did not usually object to licensing applications; however he felt the site to be unsuitable as it was too cramped an area, close to the houses and without a car park.

·         Some residents had started a petition against the application, and had been unhappy that the meeting  ...  view the full minutes text for item 26.
