Guest house owner told to be a good neighbour as licence granted
A GUEST house owner has been warned to be a good neighbour after being granted a premises licence. Councillors on the Angus licensing board agreed to grant the application for the nine-bedroom Grey Harlings Guest House in Montrose, subject to additional conditions. The on-sales licence was granted by the committee, despite an objection from next door neighbours Kevin and Tracey Prudhoe. Mr Prudhoe said that since 2015 his family has been increasingly disturbed by “antisocial noise” as a result of activities at the guest house. Owner Keith Watson denied the claims of excessive noise and said Mr Prudhoe’s audio clip was of children playing on a bouncy castle during a birthday party in the afternoon. Arbroath West and Letham SNP councillor Alex King suggested there should be restrictions imposed if the licence was granted. Alcohol would not be permitted in the courtyard, gazebo and patio.
Capacity would be limited to 30 and there would be no music in the outside areas.
