Holiday park gets licence extension

RESIDENTS of a Norfolk coastal village yesterday lost their fight to stop a licence extension at a holiday park that could mean more drinking and entertainment until 2am.

RESIDENTS of a Norfolk coastal village yesterday lost their fight to stop a licence extension at a holiday park that could mean more drinking and entertainment until 2am.

About 80 residents signed a letter objecting to the proposals by Caister Holiday Park, in Caister, near Yarmouth, claiming noisy campers already often disturbed them as late as 1am after dispersing from bars closing on the site at midnight.

Yarmouth Borough Council's licensing sub-committee agreed a change of hours for the site's Mash and Barrel bar from midnight to 2am closing. It also agreed that the park's Neptunes club could stay open until 2am on a Sunday, the same operating hours as the rest of the week.

However, conditions include an obligation for the park to organise twice-yearly public meetings and a need for it to organise late-night security patrols along the Branford Road park perimeter.
