Perth City Centre Conservative councillor Heather Stewart expresses concerns over the new nightclub in Perth.
Councillor Heather Stewart speaking to The Courier said “Discount promotion flies in the face of Government and licensing policy regarding binge drinking as it is well documented that this leads to anti-social behaviour,”
“Charging 99p for any drink for a whole evening, and minimal entry fee of £1 until 11 o’clock and £2 for students, can be a recipe for disaster. It can also trigger a price war with other licensed premises in Perth.
“The conditions for this licence were extremely stringent and it seems the owners are complying. I am also very pleased to hear that last night they were using local door stewards, which is extremely encouraging for security and safety purposes.
“However, time will tell and, as a local member and resident of Perth city, I will be closely monitoring the situation and liaising with Police Scotland and Perth and Kinross Licensing Department over the next few months — especially with the extended hours over the festive season.”
