POLICE have asked for changes to a proposed jubilee celebration in Weston.

Roxanne Smith, a personal licence holder at Dragon Kiss in Regent Street, applied last week to serve alcohol and hold entertainment until 4am over the bank holiday weekend.

But Avon and Somerset Constabulary Chief Inspector Jeff Foreman has written to ask for changes in relation to the proposals, saying licence conditions would not be brought into effect under a temporary extension.

He has asked the same conditions apply and that there be no entry or re-entry into the nightspot after 2am, with the exception of maximum of 10 people smoking at one time, as long as they are supervised.

Dragon Kiss currently has a licence that allows it to serve alcohol until 2am and stay open until 2.30am seven days a week.

A hearing to decide if the changes will be made will be held by North Somerset Council’s licensing sub-committee on Tuesday.
