Bury and Rochdale Each application will be judged on its individual merits. However, the councils are concerned that a proliferation of late-night venues will increase crime, litter and noise and they say they will take this into account when judging applications in high concentration areas. Northampton "The council, in adopting this policy, recognises both the needs of residents for a safe and healthy environment to live and work and the importance of a safe and well run entertainment premises to the local economy and the vibrancy of the borough." The council says it will not operate a quota or blanket opening hours. However, it will take cumulative effect into account if it receives representations from interested parties. Sandwell The council will not operate a quota of any kind which would pre-determine applications, introduce zoning or seek to impose blanket opening hours. However, it will take cumulative effect into account if complaints have been received and will impose stricter noise controls in residential areas. Cardiff Conditions will be applied to a licensing application on an individual basis and only when needed to meet licensing objectives. The council will encourage longer hours to avoid a concentration of disturbance. It plans to set up a protocol on enforcement issues with the police to target "agreed problem and high-risk premises". Sheffield Applicants may be required to join a Pubwatch scheme and some premises will be asked to install CCTV. Licensees will be asked to show in their operating schedules how they will prevent crime and disorder, including training for barstaff on preventing the supply and use of drugs. The council will encourage the use of toughened glass or plastic drinking glasses in pubs and bars.
