Resolved that the application for the grant of a new Premises Licence in respect of 75 Park View, Whitley Bay be rejected.

 

Reasons for Decision

 

·         The difficulties presented by the inability for vehicles to park, or stop safely to the front of the premises, given the location of the pedestrian crossing immediately outside the front of the premises, which would undermine the public safety licensing objective; and

·         The likelihood of public nuisance to residents, who are already facing difficulties because of the existing number of licensed premises in Park View, which would undermine the prevention of public nuisance licensing objective.
