Hartlepool Borough Council has rejected the introduction of an Early Morning Restriction Order citing falling crime and disorder in the town centre and the financial damage that would be done to licensed premises as the reason. The Council has however indicated that it will reconsider the measure next year.
The Council made their decision having regard to some 35 representations that they had received.
Newcastle City Council’s consultation on the introduction of a Late Night Levy has come to a conclusion.
Other areas currently contemplating Early Morning Restriction Orders or Late Night Levy include Milton Keynes, York, Cheltenham, Plymouth and Chesterfield.
