5. RENEWAL OF ANNUAL PUBLIC ENTERTAINMENT LICENCE – THE THREE LIONS PUBLIC HOUSE, FARNCOMBE
[Wards Affected: All Godalming Wards]

Members will recall that there was a hearing on the annual application for renewal of the licences for the Three Lions Public House, Meadrow, Farncombe, when this matter came before this Committee in October 2002. At that time the Committee agreed to grant the licences requested for a six-month period only (to 30th April 2003), to operate on certain days of the week only, and that the works contained in the applicant’s consultants’ report should be carried out during that period, so that a further application could be submitted for the ensuing six-month period to the end of the annual Licensing year (30th October 2003). The purpose of the report at Appendix A is for the Committee to determine an application now received for renewal of the public entertainment licences for The Three Lions in for second half of the licensing year (i.e. from 1st May 2003 to 31st October 2003).

At the time of writing, the report has no significant environmental or “Opportunities for All” implications and payment of the fees for the licences contributes to the resource implications.
