This is all part of the new regime, which requires premises to reapply to the local authority, rather than magistrates.
The proposals aims to reduce the number of times people apply for extensions, but makes the licencee more accountable.
I doubt we will see any pub or hall open much later than the present times, publicans need sleep and there aren't that many late night drinkers in town anyway.

From what I know of the procedure you make this application as a one off and once granted this then would cover any parties or Christmas & New Years Eve rather than entering individual applications. I would be surprised if the pubs stayed open all of the approved hours !!

I noted an application from the three horseshoes for extended opening hours they were up to 1 30am monday to thursday, up to 2 30am on friday and saturday and 11 30pm on sundays.I am not much of a drinker myself but does that seem a bit excessive for a town like ours or am I a bit behind the times? I noted a 50% rise in alcohol related deaths in the Uk. and a an anticipated rise ion alcohol fuelled violence by our judiciary. What do other people think
