Commenting, Jonathan Smith, Managing Partner at Poppleston Allen said: ‘JD Wetherspoon has successfully appealed Newcastle City Council’s refusal to vary the Premises Licences for 3 of its premises in the city, which variation had sought to introduce a condition removing authorisation to sell alcohol for the ‘Late Night Levy period’ whilst a Late Night Levy was in place.
The condition which was put on the licence after the appeal, was the condition originally requested by JD Wetherspoon on the variation, and allows the automatic resumption of the use of those hours should the Levy no longer be charged, without the need for a variation application to add the hours back onto the licence. JD Wetherspoon’s must give 56 days’ notice of its intention to resume the use of hours should it wish to do so.’
JD Wetherspoon was represented by Stephen Walsh QC on the appeal.
