Dear Sir


Licensing Act 2003, Review Hearing: MOKO Bar and Kitchen, 16 Broad Street, Banbury


I refer to the hearing of the Licensing Sub-Committee held on 7 June 2011, at which the Sub-Committee considered an application for review of the Premises Licence in respect of the above named premises under the Licensing Act 2003.  The decision contained in this letter is a decision of the Licensing Sub-Committee.


After considering all the evidence presented and at the hearing and the information contained within the Licensing Officers report, including the application for the review of the premises licence and supporting documentation, the Sub-Committee decided as follows:




The Premises Licence shall be varied as follows:


1)       The provision of live music shall be removed from the licence


2)       The level of sound within the premises shall be controlled using a sound limiting device calibrated such that it does not allow amplified sound to be produced at a level that would materially interfere with the enjoyment of nearby dwellings. The device shall be approved and set at a level as confirmed in writing by the Anti-Social Behaviour Manager of Cherwell District Council (the Licensing Authority.)


3)       The provision of recorded music shall only be permitted between the following times:


10:00am to 11:00pm Monday to Thursday


10:00am to 1:00am Friday to Saturday


11:00am to 11:00pm Sunday
