Locals launch petition against Cleethorpes club
Local residents have launched a petition to prevent a social club which is set to reopen in Cleethorpes from playing music until the early hours of the morning.
Cleethorpes Social Club submitted an application to North East Lincolnshire Council ahead of plans to reopen this year.
In a controversial move, the owner has applied for a music and sporting events licence which will last from 11:00pm to 2:30am.
They have also requested permission to serve alcohol seven days a week.
But local residents have already objected to the plans in mass numbers.
They say the club, which is situated in a residential area on the corner of Grimsby Road and Daubney Street, will generate excess noise and disturb neighbours.
Local councillor Marie Green, has objected to the plans. She said “This property has only a narrow alley between it and the closest house in a row of terraced homes.
“Given the close proximity to homes, all licensed activities should conclude no later than 11.30pm.”
An application submitted to North East Lincolnshire Council stated that if the license is granted noise will be minimal as events are only set to take place in the front room of the building.
But the objections mean that the plans are subject to deliberation by the Council’s licence committee.
A hearing is set to take place on Tuesday 1 February.
