Council could ban more pubs and bars opening in Bedminster and Southville
A NEW ruling could be introduced by the city council to stop more pubs, bars and off-licenses opening up in Bedminster and Southville.
The authority is considering establishing a “cumulative impact area” to tackle alcohol-related problems.
Several of the zones have been set up in other areas of the city where a high concentration of licensed premises has caused problems for residents.
A decision on whether or not to introduce a cumulative impact zone in the area will be made by the council’s licensing policy scrutiny board.

The board will hear evidence from the Greater Bedminster Community Partnership on March 13.
City councillor Neil Harrison, chairman of the board, said: “While we want to protect responsible, community friendly businesses, we need to tackle irresponsible ones.
“This is a real opportunity for councillors to listen to people directly affected by our policies - we will also be going on an evening visit to the proposed area in Bedminster to make sure we get a first hand picture of what is going on.”
The board is also starting to look at how the council’s licensing policy might need to change.
Board members are keen to engage with stakeholders before a public consultation is held in July. A final decision will be made in December.
