Minutes:

The Sub Committee at its last meeting held on 26th June 2018 received the 3 Temporary Event Notices, however in order to gather further evidence, it was resolved to defer the decision of the 3 Temporary Event Notices to this meeting.

 

The Legal Services Manager briefed all present on the procedure for the meeting and advised the Sub Committee that an objection notice had been submitted by the Public Health Department of Carmarthenshire County Council in relation to 3 Temporary Event Notices which had been submitted by Mrs Maria Dallavalle of La Scala, 15 Bryn Mawr Avenue, Ammanford, SA18 2DA.

 

The Temporary Event Notices related to the sale by retail of alcohol, the provision of Regulated Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment, on the premises on the following days and hours:-

 

Temporary Event Notice 1 
Saturday 25th August 2018  - Upper Lawn, Derwydd Mansion.

·         Supply of Alcohol, Regulated Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment 12:00-00:30.


 

Temporary Event Notice 2 
Saturday 1st September 2018  - Upper Lawn, Derwydd Mansion.

·         Supply of Alcohol, Regulated Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment 12:00-00:30.

 

Temporary Event Notice 3 
Saturday 3rd November 2018  - Great Hall, Derwydd Mansion.

·         Supply of Alcohol, Regulated Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment 12:00-00:30.

 

The Legal Services Manager informed the Committee that the Public Health Department had objected to all of the 3 Temporary Event Notices on the grounds of noise nuisance arising from previous events held at the premises.

 

The Sub Committee considered the documents submitted, and all relevant written representations received before the hearing from the parties.

 

The Sub Committee received an oral representation from the Environmental Health Practitioner:-

 

  • The Environmental Health Practitioner informed the Sub Committee that he had objected to the Temporary Event Notices due to previous history regarding noise nuisance during events at Derwydd Mansion. 

 

  • Since the last meeting, the Environmental Health Practitioner reported that he had met with Mr Ian Matthews, Mrs Dallavalle’s Acoustic Consultant who had stated that whilst there no specific noise levels for such events was in existence, it was agreed that a bespoke level for this type of event would be set.  It was acknowledged that a degree of trial an error may be required in order to reach an agreed acceptable level.

 

  • The Sub Committee was afforded an opportunity to consider additional evidence, which was circulated at the start of the meeting.  The evidence included graphs which exhibited the level of noise captured on the 2nd June 2018 at 22:57 and 28th July 2018 at 21:11.  It was evident that the noise monitoring graph of the 28th July demonstrated that there was a significant reduction in beat/bass noise than the level on 2nd June. 

 

  • The Environmental Health Practitioner highlighted to the Sub Committee that it had been difficult to obtain a ‘clean’ noise recording due to the adverse weather conditions, however despite this, the noise levels displayed on the graph of the 28th July remained notably reduced by 12 decibels.
