The St Fagans pub in Glebe St, Penarth has applied to the Vale of Glamorgan Council for extend its opening hours to 02:30 AM at weekends.
The application follows a similar application which was to have been made by the Railway Hotel in Plymouth Road but which was withdrawn before it came before committee.
The full St Fagans application asks for permission :-
- To extend the terminal hour for the sale of alcohol and the playing of recorded music on Friday and Saturdays to 02.00, currently 01.00.
- To extend the terminal hour for the sale of alcohol and the playing of recorded music on Bank Holiday Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Christmas Eve to 02.30, currently 01.30.
- To extend all Opening Hours to 30 minutes after the termination of Licensable Activities.
- To extend the terminal hour for the playing of recorded music on New Year’s Eve to 04.00, currently 03.00.
A council report says the pub has a “grandfather right” which allows it to stay open for a continuous period of 36 hours over New Year’s Eve.
The St Fagans application is made in the names of the licensees Mr Harry Lonnkvist and Mr Marcus Mulot.
Officers of the Shared Regulatory Services Envoronmental Health Team visited the St Fagans and notes that the pub has no beer garden and has only single-glazed windows.
The officers say noise emanates from patrons in the street, the pub building itself and is currently the subject of an active complaint. The Environmental Team is recommending that the council should NOT allow an extension of the current hours .
The Vale of Glamorgan licensing sub-committee is due to consider the application next week.
