The Development Control Committee agreed unanimously last night that enforcement action should be taken to terminate the unauthorised night club activities; the unauthorised use of the riverside terrace.

We welcome this decision but note that this is the second time the committee has told OPA to cease operating as a night club. In the interim there was also a decision by the licencing committee to restrict the use of music to that appropriate to a restaurant.  None of these previous decisions changed OPA’s mode of operation.

We hope this time BANES will have the determination to make their decision stick.
