A city centre nightclub has been granted permission to stay open until 3am on 15 Sundays a year.

Club Veeda in Adelaide Street had asked St Albans district council (SADC) for an extension of their licence in order to play music and stay open until 3am and sell alcohol until 2am, from Mondays to Sundays inclusive.

Written representations condemning the plans were submitted by 31 objectors, but none of these attended last Friday’s hearing of the licensing sub-committee to address the issue.

A report of the meeting’s proceedings stated: “We have still taken into consideration the written representations but we have given them less weight.

“Neither the police not the Environmental Health Authority have made representations; we recognise that they are our experts in crime and disorder and public nuisance respectively. Whilst it’s referred to as a residential area by the objectors, we consider it to be an area of commercial and residential premises.”

The change of licence was granted for 15 Sundays, with a change in their operating conditions to include announcements and notices reminding patrons to leave quietly.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
