Noise test for pub caught in opening row; MOSELEY.

A "before and after " noise trial has been ordered to fix the opening hours of a Moseley pub.

The Elizabeth of York is one of ten pubs on and around the High Street which are governed by different and staggered opening hours.

And it has been allowed a 12 month trial to open two hours earlier for breakfast and an hour later at night at weekends.

But city planners responded to residents' objections about late night noise by ordering a test.

Noise levels outside the pub are to be tested before it is allowed to open until 12.30am at weekends and then monitored afterwards for comparison. Previous attempts by the Wetherspoon's pub to extend its hours have either been refused by the council or withdrawn because of the impact of noise and disturbance on residents. Fiona Adams of the Moseley Society told councillors she was disappointed the latest effort had not been vetoed. She predicted it would only trigger off a fresh round of competition from other Moseley pubs to increase their licensing hours.
