An application for a premises licence at Burley Conservative Club will be considered by councillors later this month.
An application has been made to replace the club’s existing premises certificate, allowing the club to change the way it operates.
The applicant’s intention is to allow members of the public (in addition to club members, associate members and their guests) to use the club facilities without the need to apply for Temporary Event Notices.
The application for the club, on Bankfield Gardens, Burley, has attracted one objection from a local resident, on the grounds of noise and public nuisance.
A report to be considered by councillors sitting on the licensing sub-committee explains that the club’s premises certificate may currently only apply for the benefit of members, associate members and bona fide guests, in accordance with the club constitution. The club is keen to expand their audience to the wider community.
The existing club premises certificate authorises the supply of alcohol, performance of a play, indoor sporting events, live and recorded music Sunday to Thursday 9am – midnight and Friday and Saturday 9am to 1pm.
Performance of dance and entertainment can be held Monday to Saturday 11am – 11pm and Sunday 12pm – 10.30pm.
The application, which will be considered at Leeds Civic Hall on Monday, 22 November at 10am, doesn’t seek to extend the hours of opening or entertainment.
