A date has been set for councillors to review the licence of a troubled city centre bar.
MACs bar in Friargate has been shut since early June after Lancashire Police applied for a closure order.
It followed an incident outside the club which saw a large number of revellers involved in a stand off with police officers.
On Tuesday 16 June the bar was ordered to close for three months by District Judge Jane Goodwin who said the bar had not done enough to control drunken behaviour outside the venue.
Now councillors on the Preston City Council licensing committee are due to meet on Monday 6 July to review whether the venue and management should hold a licence to sell alcohol.
At this stage now paperwork has been tabled for the meeting but it is due to take place from 10am at the Town Hall.
A petition created by MACs bar owner Andrew Macdonald has seen 1,500 signatures in support of the bar being reopened.
What do you think about the licensing hearing? Should MACs keep its licence? Let us know in the comments below
