A STALYBRIDGE bar will have its licence reviewed after a joint investigation involving police and council officers.
Back to the 80s, a popular venue on the corner of Market Street and Water Street, has been abruptly silenced as the Greater Manchester force swiftly applied for a review of the establishment’s licence.
The move came in the wake of an ‘incident of serious crime’ that unfolded in the early hours of Monday, July 24.
And now authorities have placed a notice on the building outlining its plans.
The Correspondent understands the alleged incident involved bar and door staff, leading to serious concerns about public safety.
Details have not been disclosed by the authorities but it has been confirmed the situation warranted immediate action.
As a result, Greater Manchester Police has sought a review from Tameside Council, aiming to address the safety issues posed by the bar’s continued operation.
The venue can remain open during the review period, with amended hours and conditions.
However, a panel at a hearing can decide to either modify the conditions of the licence, exclude a licensable activity from its scope, remove the designated premises supervisor, suspend the licence for a period not exceeding three months or revoke the licence completely.
Representations being invited from all parties until Thursday, August 24.
