Licence granted for Strand events

An entertainment licence for the Strand Gardens has been approved by district bosses.

The licence covers the whole Strand, and will allow events to be held for up to 12 days a year, between 10am and 10pm.

Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and one other person had previously raised concerns about the licence, but these issues were resolved with mediation talks in advance of a hearing, allowing East Devon District Council’s licensing committee to give the go-ahead.

The licence does not cover the sale of alcohol.

Organisers of individual events would need to apply for a separate licence.

Police have asked that only one such licence be granted a year, for the Christmas Cracker.

There is also a condition of the entertainment licence that for any event involving 500 or more people, CCTV cameras in the town centre must be manually operated 30 minutes before, during and 30 minutes after each event.
