After a period of time the Sub-Committee, The Head of Democratic Services and Elections and the Committee Services Officer returned.
The Chairman of the Sub-Committee informed all parties that the Sub-Committee has RESOLVED:
Not to grant a licence to the applicant as to do so would undermine the Crime and Disorder objective. It weighed heavily on the minds of the Sub-Committee members that Essex Police had serious concerns in granting this Licence to the applicant with the convictions that had been set out. The Character statements received by the Sub-Committee as were considered but did not put the balance in favour of granting the licence in this case.
