Chesham’s Red Lion pub will be given permission to play music until 1am in morning if a new licensing application is approved.

The popular boozer at 28 Red Lion St has recently undergone a refurbishment and will reopen tomorrow, with a Brit pop, indie and rock ‘n’ roll night.

On Thursday, Buckinghamshire councillors on the licensing sub-committee considered an application to extend the hours that the pub can play recorded music, with the council’s decision notice due on Tuesday.

If approved, the hours would be extended until midnight from Sunday to Wednesday and until 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.

The application also seeks to amend the layout of the premises with the addition of a pergola in the outdoor area and changes to the internal fixed seating.

Four objections to the application were received during the 28-day consultation period, which raised concerns about noise nuisance from music and people in the outdoor area, as well as potential traffic nearby.

The application was submitted on behalf of premises licence holder Spirit Pub Company (Leased) Ltd, while a separate application has also been made to transfer the licence to Greene King Brewing & Retailing Ltd.
