Annex 1 - Mandatory Conditions
Annex 2 - Conditions consistent with the Operating Schedule
1. Noise from amplified and non-amplified music, singing and speech arising from regulated entertainment at the premises [between the hours of 23:00 and 07:00] shall not be audible inside habitable rooms of noise sensitive properties in the vicinity.
Licensees are advised to carry out a simple “sound check” outside the nearest noise sensitive property by listening to the music etc. coming from regulated entertainment. If the music etc. is clearly audible then it is likely that this condition is being breached. Steps should then be taken to reduce the volume of the noise.
For the purpose of providing an objective standard to assess whether this condition is being complied with or not, noise shall be considered not to be audible if:
a) the measurement of sound when music etc is on (expressed as LAeq, 1min) does not exceed the measurement of sound (expressed as LA90, 5min) when the music is off, and
b) the measurement of sound in each 1/3rd octave band between 40Hz and 160 Hz when music is on (expressed as L10, 1min) does not exceed the measurement of sound in the same 1/3rd octave bands between 40Hz and 160Hz when the music is off (expressed as L90, 5min).
All measurements to be taken within the habitable room normally occupied at the time in question, using a Type 1 integrating-averaging sound level meter compliant with BS EN 60804, with either windows open for normal ventilation or closed, whichever situation causes greater noise disturbance.
2. All external doors to the premises (including fire-exit doors and patio doors) shall be kept closed during the course of regulated entertainment, other than for normal access and egress.
3. No adult entertainment shall take place on the premises.
