The police imposed the ban as one of the measures to deal with a spike in murders in the parish.

The Mayor said it was insulting for police to impose the ban without first consulting the Parish Council.

But now he says he'll be meeting with the police as part of a committee that will review the ban.

Mr. Scott says the ban on entertainment activities is severely hampering small businesses in the parish and that many of them face closure.

He says a targeted ban in specific areas would be a better solution.
