Brewing company granted license

Published

on

lagerP E M B R O K E S H I R E BREWING COMPANY has been granted a license allowing them to sell beer on their premises. 

The decision was reached after members of the Licensing Sub Committee meeting, which met on Tuesday (July 22), invoked a five-day rule giving them extra time to discuss the application. A number of residents from Saundersfoot were present at the meeting and had the opportunity to give their views. Saundersfoot County Councillor Phil Baker and chair of the Community Council, Huw Morris, were also in attendance. Most of their concerns centred around the use of the building with a newly submitted application showing a games room and a beer garden. Those who attended were of the opinion that the building might eventually be turned into a pub. At the meeting, with advice from their lawyer, those two areas were withdrawn. Concerns were also raised about a wealth of other issues including health and safety reasons, waste, impact on infrastructure, increased traffic and noise pollution. The plans for the site, which will be located at The Old School on The Ridgeway, were approved by members of Pembrokeshire Coast’s National Park’s Development Management Committee at a meeting on February 19. At Tuesday’s meeting the Brewing Company’s lawyer looked to allay some of the fears that the residents had. Jon Payne said: “This is definitely not going to become a pub. It will be a micro-brewery with a visitor centre. “In terms of what we have applied for, crime, public safety and noise pollution will be very much diminished”. The bar area will also be used as for sales of various beers, and Jon Payne added: “We are trying to contain this all in one area; it is a better way of managing it”. Attentions then turned to the amount of beer that will be available. Mr Payne told members that five products would be available but only three would be available as tasters. He added that the tasters which would be sold would be half pints. He said: “There will be two licensed individuals who will manage this; they will have this under control”. Councillor Phil Baker said: “There is some opposition in Saundersfoot. Half pints are being sold but when does that stop? By granting a full license you are placing the applicants at odds with the planning conditions. “This enterprise is welcomed by me but please ensure that this does not become a public house”. Summing up, Jon Payne said: “The hours that we have given have been designed to prevent public nuisance. “There will be ample parking around the site. The police have analysed this and they do not think that there is an issue with crime and disorder. “The premises will close at 8pm; this is more than suitable for the area. It is not in the interest of the company to operate in such a way as to cause disturbances”. The councils Licensing officer, Alun Williams, also requested that a new drawing be submitted showing the plans without the beer garden and games room.
