Operating Schedule Conditions:
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.

) 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
) 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)
