BINGE drinkers in Huddersfield face a pricing blow.
Pubs and clubs are in talks with Kirklees Council officials and police, who want to bring in a minimum price of £1.50 per drink.
The move to increase prices on drinks promotions is another way to try and halt problems caused by alcohol.
In a bid to stop late-night binge drinking, town centre pubs and clubs this year signed a charter forbidding alcohol promotions costing under £1.
Now, some people want to raise that levy to £1.50.
The proposal came at a meeting in Huddersfield between licensees and Kirklees Council officials.
They are working alongside police to stop the blight of late-night rowdyism fuelled by cheap drinks.
Set-price entry into clubs with ``all you can drink" offers were turning Huddersfield into a boozers' paradise.
Club and pub bosses are now in talks with their head offices to consider giving the new pricing policy the green light.
Kevin Kendall, head of Kirklees Council's licensing department, said: "We are not creating a cartel. That would be unlawful."
He said the charter was put in place to make the streets safer at night. Other measures, apart from pricing policies, had also been introduced, he added.
Pubs and clubs must employ registered door staff, while CCTV and security lights have to be installed at premises if advised by the police or the council.
All participating premises must also have a pro-active policy when searching for drugs.
