A BUCKS pub’s bid to stay open until 5am for special events will be determined by councillors tomorrow.

The owners of the Red Lion, 41 The Green, Wooburn Green, want to change the existing licence so it can serve customers later during the festive period.

Applicant Greene King wants the pub to be able to sell alcohol from 11pm on New Year’s Eve until 5am on New Year’s Day.

The pub and brewing chain is also seeking permission for the pub to serve until midnight on St George’s Day, St Patrick’s Day, Christmas Eve and statutory holidays when they fall between Sunday and Thursday.

This would extend to 1am the following day when the festive days fall between Friday and Saturday, according to the application submitted to Buckinghamshire Council.

A successful licence change would also allow recorded music to be played from 10am to 1am on Friday and Saturday.

Meanwhile, live music would be able to be played on New Year’s Eve until 00:30am New Year’s Day.

The application will be determined by councillors on the council’s licensing sub-committee on Wednesday this week.

A report to the committee notes a “concern that the application shall have a negative effect on residents in nearby residential properties”.

It adds: “There is a particular concern raised about noise from speakers in the outside areas of the premises.”
