AN application for a premises licence at a former shop in a residential street in the centre of Buckingham has attracted fierce opposition from neighbours.

The application, by Louis Myhill of Louis Kitchen Ltd, would enable the former the Holland Electrical store to operate as a restaurant.

It would have seating for about 50 people, with a licence to serve alcohol with food and play recorded music between 8am and 11pm seven days a week.

Mr Myhill has told the licensing services department at Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) there will be no live music and no music will be audible from outside the premises.

About 20 letters of objection have been submitted to AVDC from local people. Objections include hazards due to the limited space for parking on Nelson Street, noise and public disorder.

One objector said: “Do we want even more inebriated youths lurching down Nelson Street? I have already had my door kicked in and people are always banging on th door as they walk past.”

The application is due to be heard next Tuesday.
