Calls are being made to extend 'alcohol saturation' policies from Birmingham city centre to a vibrant suburb to curb drink-fuelled disorder.
A Moseley councillor is urging licensing officials to make the district a Special Policy area which will ensure the cumulative effect of all local bar opening hours will be taken into account with each fresh application by pubs.
At the moment only the Broad Street area of the city centre carries the restriction on its night-time economy, which will fully come into effect in November.
The Birmingham Council Licensing Policy, a document required under the new Licensing Act 2003, allows areas of Special Policy to be set up where there is a cumulative impact from multiple licensed premises close together.
However, Coun Barry Henley (Lab Moseley and Kings Heath) fears unless Moseley curbs its nightlife, incidents of anti-social behaviour will spiral out of control.
Coun Henley said: "An area of Special Policy is in place in Broad Street, but there is a worse problem in Moseley.
"Ten pubs are close together in a suburban High Street that has families living above the shops and is intersected by and surrounded with residential streets.
"I have asked that a Special Policy for Moseley be considered by the Ward Committee, so that a recommendation can be made to the city council to impose a Special Policy area."
Moseley is one of several districts across Birmingham which has imposed an Alcohol Free Zone, which gives police extra powers to curb drinking in the street.
Coun Henley said this measure did not go far enough and raised concerns about the number of pubs in Moseley which have applied for extended opening hours under the terms of the new Licensing Act.
He said: "We need a Special Policy to be defined for the area of Moseley Village. That would then combine with the alcohol-free zone and the planning restrictions to slow the deterioration in the conditions which residents have to endure.
"Late night noise, drunkenness, vomiting, urinating on the street, taxi horns blaring, aggressive begging, and harassment of passers-by are problems enough up to midnight.
"It is a potential disaster that ten pubs in a residential area might be permitted to spew this nuisance onto the local streets and car parks at up to 2am."
Coun Henley said he launched his campaign as he was met with barriers from licensing councillors in his efforts to curb opening hours for Moseley's pubs.
The argument of cumulative effect was not permitted in his objections, which have to be made for each application.
However, if Moseley is granted Special Policy status each application for extended opening hours could be objected to on the basis of the effects it would have when taken into account with other pubs in the area.
Coun Henley said the plan would not erode Moseley's vibrant reputation.
"Moseley is a place where a lot of people come for a night out. That will continue I am sure, but I feel we need to balance out people's enjoyment of Moseley with the concerns that residents have about anti-social behaviour."
