We are now in a 28 day review period during which Stockton Council Licensing Authority have invited any interested parties to make representations to them in relation to the Application for Review – which will determine whether it goes ahead or not – before Tuesday 20 April 2021.

The reasons stated by Cleveland Police for submitting the application are that recent incidents at the bar undermine 2 of the 4 Licensing Objectives set out in the Licensing Act 2003, specifically The Prevention of Crime and Disorder and Public Safety objectives.
Cleveland Police have applied for a Review of the business’s Premises License because we took part in a national political campaign known as The Great Reopening which aimed to bring public attention to the destruction of small, independent businesses caused by the actions of the current government in Westminster.
