Customer Question

we have a small charity which has been granted an alcohol/entertainment licence for a 1 day event after an objection was overruled. The objector has now appealed but we have our event in 10 days, what are the possible outcomes?

What was the reason for the objection?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Near neighbour of site, thought that people with disabilities, music and alcohol were 'recipe for rowdiness' despite us having acceptance of local police services etc
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Thank you.

Did you apply for a Temporary Events Notice?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No it was a one year full licence which was granted after a hearing to consider the objection. My need to know is is an appeal on this basis an appeal against the council issuing it and procedural grounds or can they further try to interrupt our event? Would we have a counter claim if it was interrupted for costs incurred etc?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Thank you.

Assuming that you made a new application, the decision of the Licensing Committee will remain in force pending the outcome of the appeal, so if the appeal is not decided by the time of your sscheduled event, you may go ahead and hold the event.

May I help further?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Just to ask 'do the magistrates have a responsibility to attempt to hear this before the event?'


Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
No, they do not.
