|Cheap alcohol fuelling anti-social behaviour|
We already know the problems they cause locally, with noise, anti-social behaviour, street drinkers and begging. So when we found out about the schemes in Lark Lane and on Allerton Road a few years ago to stop them having to have any more bars, we though this was something we would have a look at.
Unfortunately the wheels of local government can sometimes turn exceedingly slowly and it has taken far longer than it should have despite dozens of meetings and piles of correspondence.
However, we now finally have some good news.
We have applied for something called a Cumulative Impact Policy which basically says that the impact of the large numbers of establishments we already have, together have caused problems and that no more should be allowed.
In order for this to be introduced we have to carry out a consultation of local people and find out what they think.
