A GREAT Yarmouth bar could lose the right to play recorded and live music because neighbours have suffered an increase in noise disturbance.

Environmental health officers say they have been left with “no alternative” but to order a review of the licence for Coyote Bar, on King Street, formerly known as the Rose Restaurant.

A GREAT Yarmouth bar could lose the right to play recorded and live music because neighbours have suffered an increase in noise disturbance.

Environmental health officers say they have been left with “no alternative” but to order a review of the licence for Coyote Bar, on King Street, formerly known as the Rose Restaurant.

In a report to the borough council's licensing committee, environmental health officer Sarah Flatman outlines a series of complaints made by neighbours who often made recordings of disturbances.

She explains that in November 2008 the use of the premises “changed significantly” with the introduction of two televisions, a juke box, new professional music system with additional speakers installed.

The report says: “Since this equipment was installed the neighbours have suffered significant noise nuisance from amplified music at various times of the day and night.”

Sound monitoring equipment installed in the neighbouring property revealed that a bass beat could clearly be heard prompting a site visit by environmental health officers, who were assured by the owner that noise levels would be decreased with equipment set at specified levels.

Despite this action environmental health continued to receive complaints from neighbours about noise, resulting in the licence review of the premises.

Environmental health has recommended the licensing committee remove permission for live and recorded music and facilities for making music from the premises licence.

The committee will meet at the Town Hall on Monday at 10am to consider the review.
