Leather Cap Review
I recently represented the Leather Cap Club, one of the few remaining clubs in Easington Colliery, on a review of its club premises certificate and premises licence. The review was brought by a neighbour, and the police submitted a supporting representation. An agreement was reached with the police to surrender the premises licence and to add further conditions to the club premises certificate. The neighbour persisted with representations that the club should be closed, but these were rejected by the licensing authority. The full reasons of the committee are available here.
I was instructed by Sarah Smith of Sintons Solicitors LLP.
