Police objection to pub licence transfer on the Wirral

A Wirral pub known as the North Star in Birkenhead has prompted local police to raise objection to its licence being transferred after a violent incident. The North Star in Laird Street, Birkenhead had made an application to transfer the premises licence to Wirral Council’s licensing authority.

The application intends to change the licence from its current holder, Mr Gerard Wilson, to a Mr Colin Fox.

Police have concerns about the licence transfer and believe its approval would “undermine the licensing objective ” The prevention of crime prevention and disorder.” A document outlining their concerns has been submitted to the licensing authority and will be presented to the licensing committee at a hearing on Wednesday morning at Wallasey Town Hall.

The police report says the objection follows an assault which took place at the North Star during a time when “ licenceable activities had been taking place.”

Wirral licensing committee will make it’s decision when it meets on Wednesday morning.
