“City centre Wetherspoon pub facing licence review after stolen handbag complaint”

This will be an interesting licence review application to watch. This is how the Manchester Evening News reported it on 14th January 2019:

“A city centre Wetherspoon pub is to have its licence reviewed after one complaint about a stolen handbag. The Waterhouse is set to undergo a review next month after a member of the public lodged a complaint with Manchester City Council following the theft. The review has been requested on the grounds of an alleged lack of crime prevention measures at the venue.”

You can see the application listed here on the Manchester Council website, but the essence of it is this:

It appears that the representation period is due to end at midnight on 1st February, which means the hearing itself is likely to be towards the end of that month.

The Members’ Area of the Licence Review Handbook website is a useful place. It is where you can find links to the various documents and source material referred to in the Handbook.

But the Members’ Area is more than that.

Whenever I think  a chapter needs a bit of an update, I’ll be posting the update in the Members’ Area. Just cross-reference the paragraph numbers that you’re looking at in the Handbook with the paragraph numbers in the Members’ Area to check if any updates have been issued.

But there is a much easier way to ensure that you are up to date.  Why not sign up to receive chapter updates by e-mail? Just look at the foot of every page of this website and you’ll see the sign-up box. Remember to confirm your email address when you get your first e-mail and you’ll never miss a thing.

And there’s more. I’ll be using this Updates and Blog area to post about additional material or news stories that I come across that might of interest to you. Don’t miss out: sign up now.
