Nightclub levy to be considered at council meeting
NIGHTCLUBS in Cheltenham will discover today whether there are any plans to introduce a nighttime tax in the town.
Tories on Cheltenham Borough Council are pushing for the levy to be brought in.
And they will ask a meeting of the full council today what steps are being taken to bring it in.
The levy would target night clubs which stay open into the early hours.

Conservatives members also want a guarantee that any money received by the council as a result of such a tax would be used to combat the "worst effects of the night time economy".
The opposition group were also due to raise concerns about irregular recycling collections in the town.
Councillor Barbara Driver (Lansdown, C) wants to have clarification on the impact narrow streets in the town have on large recycling lorries which find it difficult to navigate and if any smaller lorries are available to the authority.
