No licensing review for Conservative club after alleged lockdown breach
A Black Country Conservative Club suspected of breaching lockdown restrictions will no longer face a licensing review after police withdrew their application.
All pubs and licensed premises were closed at the time as part of lockdown regulations aimed at halting the spread of Covid-19.
Council bosses say police have now withdrawn their application asking for a review, after the the Hall Street club agreed to install CCTV cameras inside the venue.
Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for licensing, said: "The police have withdrawn their request to the council asking for a review of Sedgley Conservative Club’s licence.
"The club has agreed to a new condition to their licence as requested by the police. This is the installation of CCTV to monitor activity within the premises."
The matter had been due to go before the Licensing Committee today.
