Project: Rehab Bar, Watford
Client: Optimus Leisure
24 Acoustics are well versed in working for applicants or statutory authorities and bring a truly balanced perspective to expert witness services. In 2013, Rehab Bar in Watford found its operational hours reduced after a license review by the local Licensing Sub Committee. The bar’s operators, Optimus Leisure, enlisted the expertise of 24 Acoustics alongside leading licensing solicitors Poppleston Allen. Upon reviewing the noise condition on the premises license, 24 Acoustics found it to be unenforceable. The decision was therefore appealed in the Magistrates’ Court and the Licensing Sub Committee’s verdict duly overturned. A noise condition fit for purpose was then applied to the license, the original trading hours were reinstated and costs awarded against the local authority.
