PLANS for a weekend of live music at the Garlic Festival site, Newchurch, have been given the green light by licensing bosses.

Four complaints were lodged against the Jack Up the Eighties event by residents concerned about noise, traffic and litter.

However, the Isle of Wight Council licensing committee approved the application last Friday, after event organiser David Holmes agreed traffic management and noise level conditions with the authority’s environmental health team and the police.

The 2,000 capacity event will be held at Bathingbourne Lane, on August 9 and 10, from 11am to 8.30pm each day.

It will support the Island’s Way Forward Programme, part of Osel Enterprises, which provides support and training to people with disabilities.
