The Committee noted that this was an applications for sales off the premises by way of deliveries being made to fulfil online orders, the Applicant explained that this was a small scale operation with a maximum of one pick up daily.  Therefore the Committee did not consider that there would be any noise nuisance caused by these collections.   The Committee considered the objectors concern that intoxicated customers would attend at the premises.  The Committee however was satisfied that the intended business plan was to operate by way of online sales and the business was planning to sell beer only via it’s website, therefore given the location of the premises and its appearance the Committee considered it very unlikely that intoxicated persons coming from other premises would attend at the premises in the expectation of purchasing alcohol.  The Committee was satisfied with the proposed measure the Applicant put forward to ensure alcohol was not purchased by delivered to children or young people aged under 18.  Overall the Committee was satisfied that the application as applied for with conditions in place consistent with the operating schedule would not undermine the Licensing Objectives.
