Further to debate, Members agreed:
“This was an application to vary Premises Licence Number LN/2005118, relating to premises known as The St Mildred’s Bay, Beach Road, Westgate on Sea, Kent, CT8 8AD.
The Applicant, Mr Paul Glicksman, represented by Ms Sarah Clover, has applied to vary his premises licence by way of deleting two conditions which are currently on the Premises Licence.
1. “Intoxicating liquor shall not be sold or supplied on the premises otherwise than to persons taking table meals there and for consumption by such a person as an ancillary to his meal.”

2. “The hours of off sales shall be limited to between 1000hrs and 2200hrs seven days a week.”
We have heard or received evidence from the Applicant, the Environmental Health Officer, Kent Police, the RNLI and a number of local residents, including a considerable number of written representations. We also note that the Westgate-On-Sea Town Council support the application.
We have paid very close attention to all of the material and evidence which has been put before us.
We note, in particular, that local residents have a genuine concern regarding the potential for the operation of these premises to result in noise outbreak causing prejudice to the Prevention of Public Nuisance Licensing Objective. And we do not minimise those concerns.
We have also noted that the Guidance issued under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 stipulates that we should accept the advice of the Police on matters relating to the prevention of ... view the full minutes text for item 694.
