Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A Perthshire com­mu­nity coun­cil has ob­jected to plans for a pub to re­move its bouncer on Fri­day and Satur­day nights.

Auchter­arder and District Com­mu­nity Coun­cil has con­cerns about The Ni­b­lick’s plans to scrap the week­end po­si­tion, which is set to be dis­cussed at Thurs­day’s li­cenc­ing board meet­ing.

The Lang Toon wa­ter­ing hole has re­quested to al­ter two of its ex­ist­ing li­cences - one be­ing the hours it can serve break­fasts and the other be­ing to re­move its qual­i­fied su­per­vi­sor on Fri­day and Satur­day nights, as well as spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

CC chair Mal­colm Best said:“There are two changes which the Ni­b­lick have ap­plied for. The first is to serve break­fasts out­side of it’s nor­mal hours, which is per­fectly fine.

“How­ever, they are wish­ing to re­move an ex­ist­ing con­di­tion which would re­move the se­cu­rity staff mem­ber from the door be­tween 9pm un­til around 20 min­utes af­ter clos­ing time.

“We feel that this is not some­thing which would be ben­e­fi­cial, so we have ob­jected to it.”

The PA con­tacted Greene King, the com­pany which runs the pub, how­ever they did not re­ply be­fore yes­ter­day’s print dead­line.
