Late Night Refreshment Licence

Another Late Night Refreshment Licence for Papa Johns.

Further to the successful late night refreshment licenses being granted for Papa Johns pizza take out and delivery services based in Birmingham and Cheltenham, Personal Licence Training (UK) Ltd were recently instructed to submit the application a premises licence for the activity Late Night Refreshment for Papa Johns new store on Eccleshall Road, Sheffield.

The late night licence was granted last Thursday after a hearing before Sheffield City Licensing Sub Committee. The licence was granted despite several objections that had been raised from local residents, who had not only shown concerns regarding the terminal hour of  5-00 am but looked at the other implications the licence could have brought upon the area such as anti-social behaviour, noise nuisance, and  litter issues.

Although several minor conditions were put in place in order that the licence be granted, they are conditions Personal Licence Training (UK) Ltd already recommend to clients such as Closed Circuit Television with 31 days feature with access being allowed by the police or licensing committee, notices requesting customers respect the neighbourhood when leaving the premises and litter patrols.

Following the hearing, the applicant was grateful for the knowledge and experience of Dean Carr and his team at Personal Licence Training (UK) Ltd and has already engaged in seeking advice from them regarding other potential premises.
