A Dereham nightclub will close for a month following police

Norfolk Constabulary s Licensing Team requested the temporary
closure of Splitz in Quebec Street after recording a catalogue of
incidents linked to alcohol-related crime and disorder in the past
12 months.

The team, which works with licensed premises to ensure
regulations are met in the interests of public safety, asked
Breckland District Council s Licensing Committee to consider 17
amendments to the club s existing licence including increased
security staff and improved CCTV coverage.

At a meeting in Dereham on Thursday May 9 during which evidence
was heard from all sides, the committee concluded the club had been
badly run for a considerable period .

The club s licence was suspended for one month, which comes into
effect after a 21 day appeal period, and 16 amendments made to the
licence including better CCTV, six door staff on Fridays, Saturdays
and Bank Holidays, improved training for staff and an earlier
cut-off time for late entry.

Speaking after the hearing, Inspector Ed Brown of the
Constabulary s licensing team, said: The licensing committee has
given a clear direction to the club management on how it must be
run in the future, to prevent crime and disorder and improve safety
for both patrons and the local community.

Our action is not taken lightly and is done so when all other
avenues to address the issues have been exhausted.

We will continue to support the licensees in this case to meet
the conditions of their license and make the improvements
