Clubhouse terrace passed despite noise concerns

A tennis and squash club in Kent has won permission for a terrace to enable spectators to watch matches being played on the courts despite concerns that noise would disturb residents.

The terrace would be reached from a bar area via sliding patio doors. The inspector recognised a risk that local residents would be adversely affected by the noise generated by people congregating on the terrace. However, she decided that this could be minimised by conditions preventing use of the terrace in conjunction with social functions and limiting hours of use.

Inspector: Jacqueline North; Written representations.
