At the express permission of the Chair the committee discussed an application for a new pavement licence from Blind Tiger Bars Ltd for a new pavement licence under the Business and Planning Act 2020 due to the short timescale of the consultation.
Members had concerns about the location of furniture and the potential obstruction of the pavement if tables were able to be moved by patrons on what is an uneven surface. They were also concerned about the location of the furniture and the impact on sight lines of any vehicles accessing the residential units behind the premises.
Members agreed to carry out a site visit and provide their comments to the Chair for a response to be collated. They also agreed that WODC Licencing Team be asked to carry out a site visit prior to making their decision.
That, members provide individual responses to the Chair of the committee in order for a collated response to be returned.
