Nightclub licence decision imminent amid strong local opposition

THERE is strong local opposition to a Penally nightclub licence application due to be decided this week.

Fears of noise pollution, anti-social behaviour, alcohol fuelled issues have been highlighted by the community council and residents of an adjacent holiday park in response to the potential nightclub.

The manager of Crackwell Holiday Park, Emma Thomas, is among several people who have raise objections.

She referred  to previous noise abatement orders issued when it was Chequers adding there were fears it would “disrupt the peace and tranquillity” of the holiday park.

On Thursday, August 22 Pembrokeshire County Council’s sub-licensing committee will decided if the ‘Queen of Clubs’ – to be opened at the former Chequers nightclub –  be issued a licence.

The applicant is Carmen Clemas of Pentrecagal, near Newcastle Emlyn, wants  to serve alcohol 8pm to 4am Friday, Saturdays and Sundays.

Dyfed-Powys Police licensing officer Nigel Lewis raised concerns about road safety at the venue and in a letter to the committee states that he wants a “multi-agency meeting” to be held if a licence is granted ti agree solutions.

Mid and West Wales Fire Service has visited the premises and made a list of improvements that must be made to comply with fire regulations.

Councillors will discuss the application at 10am, at County Hall, Haverfordwest.
