We reported earlier this week that Walsall Council’s Licensing and Safety Committee were due to consider whether to seek more evidence with a view to consulting upon an Early Morning Restriction Order (EMRO).
The committee meeting took place yesterday evening (22 February 2023) and the members voted unanimously not to request a further report which could set out crime statistics for the town centre.
Councillors commented that they felt enforecement action against individual operators who may not be promoting the licensing objectives would be more appropriate than a blanket ban on alcohol sales past a certain time.
