    It would be interesting to ask the police if the extended licensing hours have actually lessened
    the violence and sexual assaults related to the night time economy in the North Laine /Seafront
    area when compared with the old 2am closing time for clubs.
    Or – try asking the beleaguered residents of Ship Street Gdns and Black Lion Lane, night time economy to them means the aggressive dealers who work those passages and get in regular fights over and the passages being used for sex and as a toilet.
    The council won’t allow installation of gates for night time security.
