The application was submitted by a Council Enforcement Officer following a large number complaints of loud music and excessive human noise contravening the prevention of public nuisance licensing objective.

 

Four representations were received from other persons in relation to continued noise nuisance at the premises.

 

The Panel were advised by the Licensing Enforcement Officer that the Premises Licence Holder had agreed fully to the conditions (above) proposed by the Noise Enforcement Team and had evicted the tenants who had caused the nuisance. Officers were in agreement however that the security staff originally called for by the Noise Enforcement Team (please see page 63 of the agenda) would no longer be necessary, although that could be reconsidered.The Noise Enforcement Officer confirmed that his team would be happy for the Panel to impose the remaining conditions as the great majority of complaints had been raised about activities after midnight.

 

The Premises Licence Holder confirmed that he would be happy to accept the conditions and advised that he would either rent the premises to new tenants who would run it as a restaurant with background music only, or use it an office himself. He accepted full responsibility for the problems his previous tenant had caused to neighbours and offered his wholehearted apologies.
