Hotshotz applies to re-open
PUBLISHED: 12:30 26 July 2012
AN APPLICATION to re-open a bar closed by police after drugs raids last year has been re-submitted, despite a similar application being withdrawn in June.
Hotshotz in Meadow Street had its licence suspended by North Somerset Council in November, but Wendy Johal, the wife of the former licence holder, had submitted an application to open the bar again in March.
But it was withdrawn before the licensing hearing was due to discuss it, a move condemned by one councillor as ‘a waste of taxpayers’ money’.
Now, the application has been submitted again, this time by the original licence holder Kashmira Johal and his wife Wendy Johal.
It was submitted on July 10, meaning people will have until August 8 to make comments on the application or register their objections with North Somerset Council.
