Council to review noise levels at Wildlife Festival.

Hello and welcome to my blog. While I'm waiting to hear from Shoreham Dogs Trust, I thought I'd post on Shoreham Society's application for a review of the Wildlife Festival Licence.

Review of the Premises Licence at:Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport - Wildlife Festival

An application for a 'Review' of the premises licence at Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport that authorises the provision of licensable activity at the 'Wildlife Music Festival'. The temporary music venue is situated within the airport grounds at Cecil Pashley Way, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 5FF. The current licence authorises the sale of alcohol, late night refreshment and provision of regulated entertainment at a two day annual festival.
The premises licence contains a number of conditions relating to the noise of entertainment including:
  • The Premises Licence Holder shall set the day time maximum level of noise to 75dB(A) 15 minutes LAeq.
The application is seeking:
  • A reduction of the maximum noise level permitted by the licence suggesting 65db (A) as more appropriate.
The grounds for review being the Shoreham Society's contention that the licence holder is undermining the following licensing objective:
  • Prevention of Public Nuisance.
The Shoreham Society contend that the licence holder has failed to promote the licensing objective and has produced its own survey of members and local residents to support it's argument.
Licence holder and applicant: SJM Ltd./Shoreham Society
Consultation closes: Friday 2 October 2015
Committee Hearing: To be announced

     The Licensing Committee will review the Licence at a public hearing but in the meantime, residents can write in with their views on whether or not the current noise levels create a public nuisance. In view of recent events, June seems an age away, so just to re-cap, this is what some people thought of Wildlife at the time.

     The closing date for comments is 2nd October 2015 and emails and letters should be sent to:-


post:      Licensing Unit, 
              Environmental Health, 
              Adur and Worthing Councils, 
              9 Commerce Way, 
              Lancing Business Park, 
              West Sussex.
              BN15 8TA

     Please note that this is not a re-run of last January's licensing application. It is simply to decide if the noise limits set by the Council has created a public nuisance and if so, whether the lower limit should be substituted for the higher.
     Thanks for dropping by and I'll see you in a fortnight.
     Ta-ra for now.
