A nightclub has had its licence suspended by Coventry City Council.
Club M in Croft Road has been ordered to close immediately.
Unless the premises make further representations, the closure order will last until a full hearing, where Members of the Council’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee will determine whether the club is allowed to re-open..
A meeting of the Council’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee made the order today (5 September) following police action to close the club for 24 hours at the weekend, after a fatal stabbing in the area.
Cllr Patricia Hetherton, Chair of the Licensing and Regulatory Committee, said: “We have resolved to suspend the premises’ licence of Club M pending a full review hearing.
“The committee considered the licensing objectives, which include crime and disorder and public safety and felt that the premises pose a serious risk to the public if they remain open.”
The committee heard there had been reports of previous disorder associated with the club and reports of breaches of licence conditions.
