Have your say

A REVIEW of a pub’s licence will no longer take place after police reached an agreement with its owner.

Officers and the managers of Slug & Lettuce, in Southgate, Chichester, have reached a ‘mutually acceptable agreement’.

Jean Irving, licensing and public safety manager, said: ‘Sussex Police had serious concerns regarding the levels of crime and disorder associated with this premises.

‘However, following discussions we have been impressed with the positive reaction from management and no longer see the need for a review.’

Managers have agreed to close the premises at 8pm for the next three weekends.

A new midnight closure on Fridays and Saturdays has been agreed.
