Town centre pub given reprieve following review

Friday 12th October 2012

A popular town centre night-spot has been given a reprieve after police asked the council to review its licence.


Lucorum, a converted linen mill with a glass-covered courtyard, on Hanson Street, was put under the spotlight after the force applied for a review following concerns over crime and disorder and public safety.


A two-and-a-half hour meeting at the town hall on Tuesday heard representations from the club and it was agreed that its licence would remain intact subject to conditions being met.


Chairman of the Licensing Board, Coun Charlie Wraith, said afterwards: ''The police gave their evidence and Lucorum gave theirs.


''The conclusion was that Lucorum's management was willing to accept a long list of requirements and have been given an opportunity to put their house in order."
