A PUB in Poole has been found to have breached a noise abatement notice following a number of noise complaints from residents.

The Sweet Home Inn on Ringwood Road were issued the notice on Thursday April 15, 2020 and were seen to be violating this code on Saturday April 17.

BCP Council said that officers also noted “several breaches” of the current Covid-19 regulations and guidance issued by the government.

A spokesperson for BCP Council said: “Following a number of noise complaints, our officers visited the Sweet Home Inn on Ringwood Road last Saturday April 17 in the afternoon.

“During the visit, officers witnessed a breach of the Noise Abatement Notice which was issued to the premises on September 15, 2020 and is still in force.

“A letter has since been sent to the owner of the premises to remind them of the conditions of the Noise Abatement Notice and detailing the areas the premises was found to be in breach of Covid-19 regulations so these can be rectified for the benefit of public safety.”

Pub landlord Mark Copping has complained about a lack of guidance from the council regarding the noise violations and said he is “annoyed” by the latest setback.
