Guest house owner told to be a good neigh­bour as li­cence granted

Evening Express (City Final) - - Uk & Abroad -

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.
