PART I – RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE COUNCIL

51. APPLICATION FOR A LICENCE TO DEAL IN GAME, MARKS & SPENCER SIMPLY FOOD, 94 HIGH STREET, CRANLEIGH (Agenda Item 7)

51.1 Under the Council’s Scheme of Delegation any application for a new game licence must come before the Licensing (General Purposes) Sub-Committee. The Sub-Committee resolved at its meeting on 11th April to grant a game licence to Marks & Spencer Simply Food for its premises at 94 High Street Cranleigh.

51.2 The total income for an application is the statutory fee of 4, which clearly does not go any way to meet the costs of the committee process. The Sub-Committee therefore proposed a recommendation that the Scheme of Delegation be amended to permit the Chief Executive, after consultation with the Environmental Health Manager, to authorise the issue of these licences, subject to there being no reason for refusal in any case.


51.3 The Committee

RECOMMENDS that

6. the Scheme of Delegation be amended to permit the Chief Executive, after consultation with the Environmental Health Manager, to authorise the issue of Game licences, subject to there being no reason for refusal in any case.
