A Chesterfield bar will remain closed after its licence was suspended by Chesterfield Borough Council.
Councillors met yesterday, Wednesday 17 August, and decided to continue the suspension of the licence of Moo Bar on Corporation Street.
No licensable activities can be conducted at the premises during the suspension, which could last as long as three months.
The suspension, ordered by the Council’s licensing committee after a private hearing, was put in place with a requirement that the business reviewed its management policies and practices, particularly with regard to staff conduct, supervision and reporting, to ensure a range of controls is put in place.
The decision followed earlier action by the committee on 27 July imposing an interim suspension of the license.
Councillor Lisa-Marie Derbyshire, chair of the group of licensing committee which made the decision said: “We consider licensing issues seriously. After hearing representations from lawyers for the police and the licensee, Mr Petrillo, we have decided that the suspension of the licence for Moo Bar must continue.
“We will review this in the coming weeks to consider once steps have been put in place by the licensee to review the policies in place at the bar.”
