Plans to impose restrictions on new pubs and clubs opening up within a defined area of the city have come unstuck. The Council has been challenged by The British Beer and Pub Association.
The Association has claimed that the Council’s consultation process was flawed and is pushing for further discussions around the proposals.
Brighton and Hove Council had planned to introduce a cumulative impact zone to help to control the growing problem of alcohol induced anti-social behaviour in certain areas of the city.
The zone would stretch from Holland Road in Hove to St James’s Street in Kemp Town taking in the central area of the city including key hot spots like West Street.
The consultation document will be available online at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk and in libraries.

Closing date for submissions is Friday 11 January, 2008. A final report will be submitted to the licensing committee for decision on 14 February 2008.
