A popular Royal British Legion Club's plans to change its opening hours has sparked concern about parking and noise for nearby neighbours. 

Holmer Green Royal British Legion Club, at 48 Beech Tree Road in Holmer Green, has applied to vary its premises license to allow for recorded music to be played, and to modify its hours so they can open on Sundays at 10am and stay open an extra hour after standard times on New Year's Day, Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, Easter weekend, bank holidays and New Year's Eve. 

The club is very active and regularly puts on live music and entertainment events for the local community and its members, as well as showing live sport. 

While no objections to the longer opening hours and the playing of recorded music were put forward by Thames Valley Police or the licensing authority, Little Missenden Parish Council has raised concerns about parking nuisance and noise affecting neighbours. 

The club is surrounded by homes on a residential road and the parish council is worried it could affect them. 

They wrote: "Little Missenden Parish Council are concerned about the loack of parking at the premises, which then leads to increased street parking.

"The premises are very close to neighbouring properties, therefore any additional hours would pose additional noise disturbance for local residents."

The application is set to be considered by the Buckinghamshire Council licensing sub-committee on Thursday (July 14) before a decision is made on whether to allow the change or not. 

The decision will then be communicated to the club directly within weeks.
