But on October 17, Luminar Lava Limited, who owned the club, went into administration on October 27, meaning the club licence had lapsed.
At a council licensing meeting held yesterday, Cllr Christopher Malpas announced that representatives of the administrators of Luminar will not be reinstating the licence.
An inquest into the death of the Ms Jackson student will start at Northampton General Hospital tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9.25am.
