Club K, in High Street, Hounslow, has had a temporary suspension put in place on its premises licences following an application by the police which was supported by Hounslow Council’s Licensing Panel.
The panel ordered that the club closes at 3am – an hour earlier than previously allowed – and that four additional door staff be on duty outside 30 minutes before and 30 after closing time. The club owners are also not allowed to promote forthcoming events.
These conditions will be in place until 26 April, when a formal review be undertaken to decide whether the licences should be revoked. Anyone who would like to comment in support or against the action should do so by 17 April.
Police have been called to Club K a number of times during the last 12 months, following a number of reports of serious anti-social incidents which resulted in injuries and arrests.
Following an incident on 31 March, an emergency meeting was called by the Council’s Licensing Panel, who together with the Police decided to take action.
Both parties were concerned about the anti-social incidents and agreed that conditions on the licence were necessary to prevent further crime and disorder and to protect residents who live nearby.
