Mr Potter consented to act as Chairman and duly chaired the whole of the meeting.
Mr Potter confirmed the address of the premises which were the subject of the hearing which would take place in respect to agenda items 3 as being Woodies Brasserie and Bar, 10 St Pancras, Chichester, , PO19 7SJ.
Mr Potter confirmed with the AELSC members that they had received and read the agenda papers for this meeting; namely (a) the agenda; (b) additional information provided by the applicant’s agent, Mr Jon Wallsgrove of John Gaunt Solicitors which included a number of proposed conditions by the applicant, including those already agreed in principle with Sussex Police during mediation.
