Three licenced premises in our area have had their premises licence revoked.
It is a mandatory condition of all premises licences issued under the 2005 Act that an annual fee must be paid.
The non-payment of the annual fee puts the licence holders in breach of the conditions of their licence.
The licence holders of The Chance Inn, Inverkeillor; The Bellrock Restaurant, Ladyloan, Arbroath; and the National Bar, High Street, Arbroath, were called to a Premises Licensing Review Hearing by Angus Licensing Board, for non-payment of the required annual fee.
None of the licence holders attended the hearing on Wednesday (11 June) and the board agreed to revoke their licences.
