An application for a ‘Review’ of the premises licence at Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport that authorises the provision of licensable activity at the ‘Wildlife Music Festival’. The temporary music venue is situated within the airport grounds at Cecil Pashley Way, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 5FF. The current licence authorises the sale of alcohol, late night refreshment and provision of regulated entertainment at a two day annual festival.
The premises licence contains a number of conditions relating to the noise of entertainment including:
The Premises Licence Holder shall set the day time maximum level of noise to 75dB(A) 15 minutes LAeq.
The application is seeking:
A reduction of the maximum noise level permitted by the licence suggesting 65db (A) as more appropriate.
The grounds for review being the Shoreham Society’s contention that the licence holder is undermining the following licensing objective:
Prevention of Public Nuisance.
The Shoreham Society contend that the licence holder has failed to promote the licensing objective and has produced its own survey of members and local residents to support it’s argument.
Licence holder and applicant: SJM Ltd./Shoreham Society

BN15 8TA Please note that this is not a re-run of last January’s licensing application. It is simply to decide if the noise limits set by the Council has created a public nuisance and if so, whether the lower limit should be substituted for the higher. Thanks for dropping by and I’ll see you in a fortnight. Ta-ra for now.
