Management behind Capri Café on Sandringham Road in Intake has applied for an alcohol licence between the hours of 11am and 11pm, seven days a week.

The premises was previously operating as a takeaway and the proposed licence holder and owner, Ugur Bozgeyik, wants to be allowed to sell alcohol for consumption on and off the site.

But the matter is to be decided by councillors at a hearing after licensing officers received three representations about the plans.

Officers said the comments made to the council relate to one or more of the national licensing objectives which businesses across the country have to abide by when selling alcohol.

The council has redacted the representations made from residents away from public view.

The four objectives are:

Prevent crime and disorder Prevent public nuisance Public safety Protection of children from harm

The licensing sub-committee has four options on how to proceed with the application.

These are:

Grant the licence subject to conditions which are consistent to the operating schedule, modified to such extent as the authority considers necessary for the promotion of the licensing objectives, and those conditions which are mandatory. To exclude from the scope of the licence any of the licensable activities to which the application relates. To refuse to specify a person in the licence as the premises supervisor. To reject the application.

Hayley Oxley, senior licensing practitioner at Doncaster Council said: “The premises concerned was previously operating as a takeaway establishment. The application is for a new premises licence to operate the premises as a café with the supply of alcohol for on/off sales.

“Three relevant representations regarding the application have been received from members of the public, which relate to one or more of the four licensing objectives.

“The representations, which do not form part of the public report, but as required by law, have been provided to the applicant and to the members of the Licensing Sub-Committee.”
