The hearing was conducted in accordance with the procedures as set out in the Agenda.




That having considered all the oral and written evidence submitted and having given consideration to the Licensing Act 2003 and its regulations, the national guidance and the Council’s licensing policy, the application be granted for a premises licence for the premises known as Mini-Poli Ltd, Unit 12 Lime Kiln Lane, Thetford, IP24 2BU, to operate during the hours as stated below and subject to the mandatory conditions drawn from the Licensing Act and the following conditions:

Supply of alcohol

Sunday to Saturday from 09:00 hrs until 00:00 hrs

Hours premises are open to the public

Sunday to Saturday from 09:00 hrs until 00:00 hrs


The operating schedule needs amendment in the Sub-Committees view to satisfy the full licensing objectives, and the Sub-Committee imposes the following conditions:

  1. Staff are trained in the requirements of the “Challenge 25” scheme.
  2. The “Challenge 25” proof of age scheme shall be operated at the premises where the only forms of identification recognised are photographic identification cards such as a driving licence or passport.
  3. Posters or advertisements of “Challenge 25” being in force shall be clearly visible at the door and within the premises, and in the appropriate languages.
  4. A log shall be kept detailing all refused sales of alcohol.  The log should include the date and time of the refused sale and the name of the member of staff who refused the sale.  The log shall be available, for inspection at the premises by the Police or an authorised Officer of Breckland Council at all times whilst the premises is open.
  5. The premises shall install and maintain a comprehensive CCTV system, covering all entry and exit points enabling frontal identification of every person entering in any light condition.  The CCTV system shall continually record whilst the premises is open for licensable activities and during all times when customers remain on the premises.

All recordings shall be stored for a minimum period of 31 days with date and time stamping.  Recordings shall be made available immediately upon the request of Police or an authorised officer of Breckland Council throughout the following 31 day period.

  1. All alcoholic containers shall be indelibly marked with an identification that it came from the premises, but wholesale sales may be identified by a single identification on the outside of the packaging.




The Sub-Committee finds the licensable activity of alcohol sales is acceptable.




Having heard all the evidence available to the Sub-Committee, the hours proposed in terms of opening hours and sale of alcohol are acceptable.

The Sub-Committee agreed that the reason for the imposition of these conditions is the need to promote the Licensing objectives, namely the Prevention of Crime and Disorder, the Prevention of Public Nuisance, and the Protection of Children  ...  view the full minutes text for item 1.
