Decision details

13/1358/S73 - Nusha, 7A Cambrige Leisure Park, Clifton Way

Decision Maker: East Area Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received a Section 73 application to vary conditions.


The Section 73 application sought approval to vary condition 2 of permission 08/1581/FUL to extend opening hours to allow opening until 03:00 hours on Saturdays and Sundays.


Roger Crabtree addressed the Committee and made the following points in objection to the application:


  i.  Extended hours would result in additional noise and disturbance for local residents.

  ii.  The leisure park was originally set up as a daytime and evening entertainment area, with later licenses only being granted to the cinema and The Junction.

  iii.  Late licenses had already been refused for a Wetherspoons pub and Subway as they would affect residential amenity.

  iv.  Whilst two separate Inspectors had given their views on previous applications the Case Officer seems to have only taken into account one set of views.

  v.  The number of residents in the area is increasing and they will be affected by the increased noise and disturbance. 

  vi.  3am was too late and urged the Committee to reject.


Resolved (by 6 votes to 2) to grant the application for varied conditions in accordance with the officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officer.
