Bedford Place club Revolution has applied to the Southampton City Council to change it’s premises licence, in order to allow live music and DJ sets to be played on its roof terrace into the night.
The club currently has to apply for temporary event licences to do so, but the new agreement would mean Revolution would be able to play music on the terrace from 11am to 10.30pm every day.
However, the application has been met with strong criticism from residents living close to the club who have written in to the council advising them not to accept the application.
One resident living nearby to the club said: “Already we experience unacceptable late night noise from these premises, customers queing to get in, spilling onto the pavement, screaming and shouting when leaving the premises. To allow this application to go ahead would cause further impact on our quality of life!”
A retired resident that lives near Bedford Place said: “The young students have no interest in their surroundings. The rubbish that is thrown into our gardens every day confirms this.
“So how can we accept a new idea that will only encourage them in their bad behaviour?”
The application will be discussed by the Licensing Sub-Committee next Tuesday.
