· Persons under the age of 18 years shall vacate the premises by 11.30 p.m. on days when live music is being played at the venue.
Similarly, the applicant had agreed an additional condition with the Council’s Senior Environmental Health Officer for Community Protection with specific regard to the prevention of public nuisance licensing objective, namely:
· A noise limiting device will be utilised at the premises to prevent music noise levels being audible from within the nearest noise sensitive receptors. This would be subject to Environmental Health validation prior to the premises becoming operational.
The applicant had agreed to accept all the representations made.

In view of the agreements reached, the parties had not been invited to attend the determination. It was not felt necessary to request any clarification from the parties.
