A NEIGHBOUR fearful of noise from a Wisbech nightclub must be given a phone number by the owners so they can report excessive noise.
It is one of 17 conditions which must be met before the nightclub can re-open, says Fenland District Council.
The conditions were imposed by the district council licensing committee after it agreed for the re-opening of Spices Restaurant and Bar in Falcon Road.
Councillor Kit Owen, chairman, also insisted that a noise limiter is used in the club to keep down amplified noise.
Khalid Mahmood won consent for the licence despite objections from chief constable Julie Spence who said the premises had a history of "association with problems of crime and disorder".
The chief constable felt the granting of a new premises licence would undermine licensing objectives "and will continue to operate in the same manner and possibly under the same ownership". She felt problems of crime and disorder "will continue or worsen if the new licence is granted".

However despite hearing objections from a handful of residents, the licensing committee agreed the club, formerly known as SR Taste, could have a licence.
Conditions imposed include:
Two door supervisors on duty after 8pm, and at least one female door supervisor if female customers are to be body searched
A zero tolerance policy on drugs and weapons
CCTV throughout public areas
All drinks to be served in polycarbonate plastic
A log kept of all incidents
Compulsory membership of Pubwatch
The committee also refused to allow late night opening to 5am on some occasions, restricting hours to 10am to 1am pm Fridays and Saturdays and to midnight on other days.
