The venue, City Buz’B, had a dancefloor in the basement and noise was reported by residents up to 3am.

The fine totaled £7,250 and comprised of £1,000 for each night loud music was observed plus £2150.70 in costs in addition to a £100 surcharge.

The council states:

Despite warning letters, action plans and notices issued to the premises by the Environmental Health Noise and Licensing Teams the noise problems persisted. However thanks to residents calling to report ongoing incidents to the Council’s Noise Team officers from the night call service were able to witness the noise themselves.

The license was revoked in January and is being appealed. The operator has 28 days to pay the fine.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
