Off-licence refused

An application for a licence to sell alcohol from premises in Kirton has been rejected.

Boston Borough Council's licensing sub-committee refused the application for a premises licence by Mr Nurettin Atilgan for International Food and Drink at 13 Boston Road.

Cllrs Helen Staples, Paul Gleeson and Maureen Dennis heard from police, Kirton Parish Council and residents. Objections included concerns about parking and anti-social behaviour.

In its reasons for refusal the sub-committee recorded that Mr Atilgan did not understand that he was the designated premises supervisor at another property and appeared to have neglected his duties at that property.

He could not name the four licensing objectives - the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.

The sub-committee had serious concerns about his ability to understand the Licensing Act and fulfil his role. It refused the application on the grounds that it would not promote the licensing objectives of the prevention of public nuisance and prevention of crime and disorder.
