Decision on Flemingate licence proposal
An application by the owners of Beverley’s Flemingate centre for a licence enabling it to sell alcohol and play music on the grassed area opposite the East Riding College building has been given the go-ahead by East Riding councillors, but for a reduced number of hours. The centre had requested an 11pm cut-off as part of a new all-year licence but councillors imposed a limit of 9pm after considering concerns from local residents.
Centre manager Graham Tait said the application for a permanent licence had been made rather than the current situation of applying for temporary licences as had been done for the current Nordic-style Tipi bar. But he said only three licensed events per year were envisaged for the site.
