Venue's hours reduced

A RYDE venue has had its licence pegged back by the Isle of Wight Council by an hour following noise complaints from neighbours.

Environmental health officers called for the Town Club's licence to be reviewed after residents complained about loud music, noise from the smoking area and from customers leaving the Star Street premises.

The Isle of Wight Council's licensing sub committee, which met on Friday, found there had been a consistent failure to keep noise levels down and prevent public nuisance, and ruled a noise management plan should be drawn up and submitted to the council for approval.

The club's licence to play live and recorded music and sell alcohol was reduced by one hour, from 1am to midnight, from Sundays to Thursday, and from 2am to 1am on Friday and Saturday.

A further condition, prohibiting customers from taking alcohol outside and drinking in the smoking area, was also imposed.
