Owner of Jubilee pub in Balfour Street fined for noise
8:18am Wednesday 8th August 2012 in News
THE owner of a York pub has been prosecuted for failing to comply with a noise abatement notice.
City of York Council said Peter Pendlebury and The Jubilee (2010) Limited were found guilty of causing a statutory noise nuisance from the Jubilee pub in Balfour Street on August 6, last year, in breach of an abatement notice served in June 2011, due to loud music from a live band.
A spokeswoman said following a trial at York Magistrates Court, Mr Pendlebury was fined £750 with costs of £900, while the Jubilee (2010) Limited was fined £4,000 with costs of £1,800.
Helen Howlett, City of York Council’s senior environmental protection officer, said the case showed how seriously courts considered the effects of noise pollution. “City of York Council is hopeful that this case will also serve as a warning to other businesses to ensure that they properly consider the effects of noise from their premises,” she said.
