Nightclub is given booze licence ban
A NIGHTCLUB has had its alcohol licence revoked after police closed it over public safety concerns.
Huntingdonshire District Council yesterday agreed to revoke the licence for Level 2, in Princes Street, Huntingdon.
It comes just a few weeks after Cambridgeshire police obtained a temporary closure order for the club at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on April 26, following concerns for public safety and a number of incidents at the club in recent weeks.
The club was served with a Section 161 Licencing Act Closure Order as police believed there was an imminent risk to public safety.
And now if anyone wants to use the club to sell booze, they will need to apply for a new licence.
Sgt Ed Mcneil said: “Crime and disorder in Huntingdon has reduced in the past couple of weeks.
“We will continue to work with licensed premises to resolve any issues that may cause concerns. However where licensees fail to work with us or where no improvement is made, we will take firm and robust action.”
Dr Susan Lammin, chairman of the Huntingdonshire Community Safety Partnership, said: “We have adopted alcohol related violence in Huntingdon as a priority because we want to see people coming into Huntingdon in the evenings to enjoy themselves without fear.”
