There are just a few days left to have your say on the future of a Reading pub which could be shut down due to “extremely serious” incidents.

The police has asked the council to “seriously consider” revoking the licence, due to assaults with weapons and glass and “constant concern” over drug use.

The Pheasant, on 225 Southampton Street, will have its licence reviewed by Reading Borough Council’s (RBC) licensing applications sub-committee in the near future.

But residents still have time to respond with their own views, by either submitting their own representation against the pub or sending in their support.

When making a decision on whether to revoke a licence, the committee must consider:

  • Prevention of Crime and Disorder
  • Prevention of Public Nuisance
  • Public Safety
  • Protection of Children from Harm

Any persons wishing to make relevant representations should do so in writing to Reading Borough Council by Sunday, October 18 to:

Licensing Section, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU.

No written representations will have personal details removed unless the licensing authority deems it appropriate to do so.

Any request for personal details to be removed should be mentioned when making the representation.

It is an offence to knowingly or recklessly make a false statement in connection with an application and the maximum fine for doing so upon summary conviction is unlimited.
