Scarborough Borough Council Wins an Appeal

16th February 2014

ADC recently represented Scarborough Borough Council in their defence of an appeal by the town Rugby Club against the council's decision not to allow the use of jungles at their events days.

These were mini rugby events organised by an outside provider where lots of games with lots of tries would take place during the course of a day or weekend. Each time the teams came on, and each time a try was scored a jungle would be played, as well as announcements, and the general noise from the games and spectators. ADC, on behalf of the council, successfully argued that music noise should not be assessed the same way as other noises and the appeal was dismissed by the inspector.

"Thank you very much for your efforts, I know that our members will be very appreciative. It is clear from reading the decision that the Inspector was impressed by the case presented and the acoustic evidence given".
