A meeting will be held behind closed doors next week as a nightclub is set to have its licence reviewed after police concerns were raised.

Mossy's nightclub, in Lowestoft, was temporarily closed earlier this month after an application for a "summary review of a premises licence" was made by Suffolk Constabulary.

At a confidential meeting next Wednesday, May 3, East Suffolk Council's licensing sub-committee will review the premises licence for The Harbour Inn (Mossy’s), Royal Thoroughfare, Lowestoft.

It comes as police investigations are continuing after a man was injured following an assault close to the nightspot on Royal Thoroughfare on April 8.

One man was arrested on suspicion of assault causing actual bodily harm, with another man later arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

With both men on bail until June 26, it later emerged that the incident involved an alleged "assault by door staff."

A report to councillors, ahead of the meeting, states: "This is an application for an expedited review of premises licence relating to the Harbour Inn, Lowestoft.

"Suffolk Constabulary, in its capacity as a responsible authority, has called for this review, stating that in their opinion the premises were associated with serious crime."

Notices listing the application for summary review of a premises licence were put up at the venue on April 11, with the "grounds for the application for review" relating to "Serious Disorder (prevention of crime and disorder)" and "Perverting the course of justice following an assault by door staff."

Management at Mossy's - which is located within the The Harbour Inn in Lowestoft, and is part of Moss and co hospitality - said they "are working closely with the police and council" and this includes "employing a brand new door supervisors team".

The report adds: "The sub-committee will be asked to determine this application and has the option to: Modify the conditions of the licence; Exclude a licensable activity from the scope of the licence; Remove the Designated Premises Supervisor; Suspend the licence for a period not exceeding three months or Revoke the licence."
