Permit for Impulse Night Club to be Revoked in Ten Days

The City of Charleston Planning Department has plans to revoke the permit for Impulse Night Club. Following a stabbing outside the club last weekend and continued concerns over safety, the city notified the club owner of the intent to revoke the permit in a letter dated January 31st. The letter says a conditional use permit granted in 2007 was based on the city's zoning ordinance that sets guidelines that operations cannot be offensive, dangerous, or detrimental to public interest. The letter also makes it clear last weekend's stabbing was not the reason behind the decision to revoke the permit, but it was a contributing factor. The permit will be revoked in ten days, and Impulse Night Club has thirty days to appeal the decision.
