Hush Taunton

Cr David Scott has sent us this article on the BBC website.  This has been an issue in Kapiti as the council has the power to allow or refuse completely these establishments in its territory.

A shop selling legal highs in Taunton, which police said was responsible for serious nuisance and disorder in the town, is closing permanently.

Avon and Somerset Police temporarily shut down Hush in Bridge Street under the Anti-social Behaviour Act.

The force has been in contact with the owner who said he would not be reopening the shop when the order expires on 16 June.

A police spokesman described the closure as a “good thing for Taunton”.
