Description by applicant:
Our current condition means we cannot accept rubbish collection or deliveries from wholesalers prior to 7am, we cannot have staff onsite outside of these hours. We would like the opportunity to develop our business in the future, we also need to ensure we have the scope to remain viable as a business. We would like to be able to host private events such as charity dinners in the evenings. We employ a large team from the local community and we very much want our cafe to remain a hub for the community, however with rising costs we need to be able to source the opportunity for additional income outside of our cafe hours to ensure we can afford to remain open.
How the applicant would like the (current) condition to be varied:
No activities associated with the uses hereby approved shall take place on-site and no deliveries shall be taken to or collections made from the site other than between the hours of 05:00hrs and 0000hrs (Monday to Sunday). Activities between the hours of 2100 and 0000 will be limited to no more that 24 times per year.

PARISH COUNCIL DECISION:
DATE: 6 July 2023
COMMENT: Following a public meeting held on 3rd July to discuss this application, SMPC determined to support this application, recognizing how the venue has proved to be a highly popular community hub. As a meeting place, events venue and very well presented cafe, The Stalls is a valuable asset to the parish, and would clearly benefit from extending opening hours.
