The Sub-Committee is requested to consider the attached report of the Licensing Team Leader.

The Sub-Committee considered the report of the Licensing Team Leader containing details of a Personal Licence holder, licensed by Dover District Council as the licensing authority, and who had been convicted of a relevant offence (as defined in Schedule 4 of the Licensing Act 2003). In accordance with Section 132A(4) of the Licensing Act 2003 a Notice was served. The Licensing Sub-Committee was to determine what action, if any, should be taken in regard to the Personal Licence.
The Sub-Committee considered the representations of the applicant and their supporting person and took into account the relevant legislation, regulations and policy as follows:
(i) The Licensing Act 2003 and in particular guidance given under Section 182 of the Act.
(ii) Section 132A of the Licensing Act 2003.
(iii) Dover District Council’s Licensing Policy.
(iv) Article 6 of the Human Rights Act (Right to a fair trial).
(v) Section 17 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (Duty to consider crime and disorder implications).
RESOLVED: That the Personal Licence be revoked.
