    Do you think this will help solve the anti-social behaviour problems in the town centre?

    A number of Wrexham councillors have expressed their concerns about the increase in the number of applications for liquor licenses for town centre locations and the impact that it’s having on traders in the town centre.

    They are calling on the council to introduce a “Cumulative Impact policy” to control the number of licenses issued for a defined areas within the town centre. Such a policy can be introduced if there is proof that licensed premises are negatively contributing to crime and disorder, public safety, public nuisance or protection of children from harm.

    If it was successfully introduced, it may create a rebuttable presumption against new applications if objections are received.

    Bet they wont take on Wallmart or Tesco’s



    Seems quite a balanced and fair report. Let’s hope the council are open minded enough to take some of the comments on board..



    When you think about how many pubs there were in Wrexham years ago, I don’t think it will have any effect. There were 19 breweries in Wrexham in the 1860’s supplying something like 110 of pubs.



    That was back in the days when drinking ale, beer or gin was a necessity because good, drinkable water wasn’t available. And there wasn’t a competition every night to see who could get bladdered first, make a mess of themselves and/or someone else or their property and then blame it on everyone except themselves.



    Today the council’s licensing sub committee rejected the proposed off licence on Chester Street, some interesting evidence given too:
