Police have objected to a city centre nightclub’s application to stay open longer on three separate occasions later this year.
Industry, based in Seagate, has applied for a 30-minute extension to its licence for the autumn holiday in September, the Halloween period and the Christmas period.
The venue is hoping to vary its licence allowing the sale of alcohol to 11am-3.30am rather than 11am-3am.
The first application requests an extension on September 28 and 29 to facilitate the autumn holiday.
The second asks for an extension in place between October 27 and November 4 to cover the Halloween period.
The club’s owners also applied to stay open later for the whole month of December, from the first of the month until January 2, 2019.
The application is due to be heard at Dundee City Council’s licensing committee on Thursday.
Objecting to the proposals, Deputy Chief Constable Designate Ian Livingston, said an extension could potentially lead to an increase in crime and disorder.
He wrote: “This premises is currently subject to an intervention plan by Police Scotland due to the numerous issues at the premises involving under age youths gaining entry and poor stewarding at the premises. An extension to the operating hours for the applicant premises may excacerbate this and result in an increase in crime and disorder.”
“For these reasons I object to the application for the purposes of preventing crime and disorder, securing public safety and preventing public nuisance.”
The licensing meeting starts at 10am.
