Release Date: 29 May 2018
A Whitton business has been ordered to pay Richmond Council’s legal costs after failing to appeal a licensing decision made by the council.
Whitton BBQ Ltd’s appeal was dismissed, and it was ordered to pay £5,642.90 in legal costs to the council after the court found the decision to revoke the business’ licence was appropriate.
The decision at the Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court reinforced a decision made by the council’s Licensing Sub-Committee on 7 November 2017.
Cllr Helen Lee-Parsons, Chair of the Regulatory Committee and the Licensing Sub-Committee, said:
“This result serves to reinforce the decision of the committee and we would urge businesses to take note of the decision and ensure they are conducting themselves in a way that meets their legal obligations.”
