‘In the application of Rokka Limited, of 64 Harbour Parade, Ramsgate, Kent CT11 8LN, for a premises licence in respect of the same address at 64 Harbour Parade, Ramsgate, Kent CT11 8LN. Thanet District Council as the relevant Licensing Authority in accordance with section 12 of the Licensing Act, and upon the consideration of representations made to the Licensing Sub-Committee on the 16th February 2020 by;
1. the Licensing Officer;
2. the Applicant and Applicant’s agent;
3. the Police;
4. the Environmental Health Officer;
have decided that the application for the grant of a new licence is approved subject to the condition that Rokka Ltd use an extra security staff member to the front of the premises for the extra hour that it will be operating for. This condition will be subject to a review after 12 months from the date of the grant of this new licence.
In considering the licensing objectives, it is the view of the Sub-Committee that the grant of the application with a condition, which is then subject to a review, will give effect to the licensing objectives to:
Prevent crime disorder – with the extra security that will be provided for the further hour of operation.
Contribute public safety – due to the extra security that will be provided for the further hour of operation.
Prevent nuisance - The extra security that will be provided for the further hour of operation will cover any potential increase in nuisance.
Protect children from harm – for the same reasons as is given above.
