Licensing Sub Committee


Membership of 3

Determines applications for licences and reviews of licences under:

- the Licensing Act 2003;
- the Gambling Act 2005;

- applications made under paragraph 2 or 3 of Schedule 1 of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 for the grant or variation of a licence where there is doubt as to the suitability of the applicant or to revoke or vary a licence under section 4 of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013; and such other legislation as may be enacted in relation to licensing matters involving public protection issues; having regard to the Council's licensing policies and guidance from the Secretary of State. As these meetings necessarily involve the attendance of applicants, and other parties, such as, applicants' representatives, witnesses, police and fire authority representatives, the 'hearings' shall normally be held during the normal working hours of the Council.

The Quorum at meetings of Council or any of its Committees is half of its membership. If, during the meeting of the Council, a Quorum of Members is not present then the meeting shall be adjourned immediately.
If the lack of Quorum only relates to particular item(s) then that particular item(s) shall be deferred.
The remaining business will be considered at a date and time fixed by the Chairman. If he/she does not fix a date, the remaining business will be considered at the next Ordinary Meeting.
Except where authorised by Statute or ordered by the Council, business shall not be transacted at any meeting unless the quorum as set out is present. Fractions of numbers are to be rounded up.
