A new premises licence has been granted for Brampton Manor by Chesterfield Borough Council’s licensing committee.
After a three hour hearing on Wednesday 2 January, a panel of councillors decided that the application by Brampton Manor Pub and Dining Ltd on Old Road should be allowed.
The committee imposed some restrictions: that the licensing hours should be limited after hearing that outside events would be restricted to no more than five per year.
The applicant, represented by Leann Bradbury, was keen to liaise with the licensing authority, environmental health and local residents to ensure any complaints were overcome.
The committee felt that by requiring shorter operational hours on some days, the risk of nuisance in the residential area could be reduced.
Councillor Andy Bellamy, chair of Chesterfield Borough Council’s licensing committee said: “The meeting saw many objections from nearby residents, some of whom spoke at the meeting.
“When making the decision, we took these into account. The application was backed by a noise management plan to minimise causes for complaint and help ensure proper management of the premises and events.”
Premises licences are required when alcohol refreshments and entertainment are provided, for public safety and to prevent nuisance. While Brampton Manor has an existing premises licence, it is understood that the new licence would now be used in place of this.
