Licensing Application W/21/00507/PRMA - Church Green, Witney

To receive and consider a premises licence application – W21/00507/PRMA – Witney Music Festival, Church Green Witney.


The Committee received and considered a premises licence application for the Witney Music Festival at Church Green Witney.


It was clarified that permission to hold the event on Church Green was not yet known but the Town Council had supported the event through its Stronger Communities Committee. It was noted that the organisers were looking at a town centre location to encourage people to visit other businesses in the town centre.


The Committee, whilst not objecting to the application, expressed the view that live music could be disruptive to residents near to Church Green and highlighted that any noise levels needed to be appropriate for the location.




That, Witney Town Council support this licensing application for the Witney Music Festival but ask that noise concerns from local residents are considered. Witney Music Festival is proposed at a smaller open space than in previous years, with more residential properties nearby. Volume levels should be actively monitored during the event and any approved noise levels adjusted according to the setting.
