GUEST,The Shambles Licensing consultation announced! (1356* d) RE: Licensing consultation announced! 27 Dec 11

John King comments: CIEH principal policy officer Howard Price said: "music at licensed premises was the third most common source of noise complaints received by environmental health departments". This is a pack of lies.

But responding to a consultation run by the Department for Media, Culture and Sport, the CIEH said the Licensing Act had proved to be a success in tackling noise complaints.

The Licensing Act is not designed to tackle noise complaints. How would this legislation tackle a complaint made about a noisy chain saw?

You can't have a complaint about noise - until some measurable noise pollution has ACTUALLY OCCURED for someone to complaint about.

What these fools are saying is that the Licensing Act has proved successful in encouraging residents to make objections about noise -in advance of a note of music being sounded and for council employees to then feel obliged to respond with the imposition of actual limitations under binding licensing conditions, also before a note has been sounded.

This is only successful in needlessly deterring all live music in advance, whether this will ever cause measurable noise pollution or not.
