AN APPLICATION to allow the sale of booze outside a nightclub has been granted despite objections from 21 residents living nearby.

The Sands in Beach Road, Weston, has a terraced area at the front and its owners want to allow the sale of alcohol and entertainment to take place there.

The application went before North Somerset Council's licensing sub-committee who gave the plans the go-ahead with a number of conditions.

At the moment the space at the front of the 850-customer venue, is being used as an area for smokers.

The owners, Cam and Kiem Mu, do not want to extend the opening hours from 12noon to 4am seven days a week. But residents living near the nightclub, particularly in Carlton Mansions in Beach Road, objected to the latest application on grounds of noise disturbance and public nuisance.

The licensing sub-committee says the licence will not be varied until noise levels have been agreed with a council officer.
