ENVIRONMENTAL Health officers at the Isle of Wight Council have called for a licence review at Newclose County Cricket Ground after complaints about noise.

Five complaints had been received by the department since December 2010 over noise emanating from a marquee at the venue on Blackwater Road, Newport.

Complaints included 'relentless' loud music and music playing past 11pm.

The environmental health department raised concerns over a lack of conditions on the current licence to control noise levels and called for noise, including live music and DJ announcements, to be contained within the premises or be 'barely audible' to nearby premises.

It also recommended that all noise complaints be recorded in a logbook and that during entertainment regular assessments of volume be recorded.

Comments can be submitted on the application for review until Friday, February 21.

A date for the review has yet to be confirmed.
