A THREE-member panel is to decide today (Thursday October 26) whether to re-issue a licence to the Nu nightclub in Royston.
The club was closed at the beginning of month after an incident outside the premises in Jeeps Lane.
Magistrates supported an application from the police to have the nightclub closed until there was a review of the licence.
Members of North Herts District Council's licensing and appeals committee will see whether changes need to be made to the current licence.

A notice was placed outside the premises which said it had been closed in "the interests of public safety".
The action was taken because it was believed that there was likely to be disorder either on the premises or in the vicinity.

It is understood the police were working on a submission to the district council about the licence before the incident.
In a report, police said that in view of "various concerns" it would be seeking to have the nightclub's licence reviewed.
In a submission for a review, police said that between November 2005 and September 9, 2006 there had been 45 incidents and 19 crimes recorded around the club.
The panel was due to discuss changes in the licence which would see the selling of alcohol stopped at midnight on Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays and that the nightclub should be closed at just after midnight rather than the current time of 3am.
