Licence is for music at fireworks display

Acting Chief Executive Ray Richardson, has sent the following information to residents living in the Coast Road area following concerns from residents who have had up to SIX different explanations from Council staff when they rang to ask about notices that had been posted:

"You may be aware that Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council staged a firework display on the Stray last year which was a huge success. As a result of this we have recently applied for a Premises Licence (Licensing Act 2003) in regard of repeating the display on the 5th November.

"If we held a firework display only, we would not require a licence, the reason for the Premises Licence, is to allow us to enhance the event by playing accompanying music for the fireworks. As part of the licence application process, we are required to advertise the application, and as the scope of the licence covers a whole host of functions, these also have to be included in the advert."
