The Chequers licence set to be reviewed

Business / Sat 28th Nov 2020 at 11:45am

THE Licensing Committee of Harlow Council is set to review the licence of The Chequers public house in Old Harlow.

The committee will be meeting on Wednesday December 2nd.

Full details of the agenda can be found below. This includes a chronological list of the complaints in regards to the premises.

The licence holder is Bradley Reeve.

The Sub- Committee is requested to consider the review application and any relevant representations and determine what steps, if any, it considers are appropriate to promote the Licensing Objectives.

That the Sub-Committee consider the application for review and any RELEVANT representations and take such of the following steps, if any, as it considers appropriate for the promotion of the licensing objectives:

  1. i)  to modify the conditions of the licence;
  2. ii)  to exclude a licensable activity from the scope of the licence;
  3. iii)  to remove the designated premises supervisor from the licence;
  4. iv)  to suspend the licence for a period not exceeding three months; or to revoke the licence.

The grounds for the review are:

The Licence holder has failed to uphold the Licensing Objective of the Prevention of public nuisance.

Mr Reeve has not taken appropriate steps to protect the licensing objective even when asked or required to do so.

To date we have not seen any documented evidence that condition 2.5 is being adhered to.

2.5 Noise levels must be monitored at regular intervals by Management to ensure that no nuisance is being created by the entertainment being provided

Whereas there is substantial evidence of nuisance caused by business at the premises.

The premises has repeatedly failed to comply with formal COVID-19 guidance and restrictions thus putting staff patrons and members of the wider community at risk of transmission of COVID-19 with the attendant risk of causing additional demand on health care services.

This posed a risk of infection among customers with the added risk of all those customers taking an infection back to their own homes and the subsequent impact on the safety of the wider community that they come into contact with and constituting a nuisance in accordance with the s182 Guidance (gatherings being prejudicial to health due to the COVID-19 infection risk).
