Licence Application - Fletton House

Oundle Town Council has recently put in a Licence Application for our new facility at Fletton House. This includes sale of alcohol, performance of dance, films indoors, light music indoors, plays indoors and recorded music indoors. More »

The notice appearing has created some understandable anxiety from residents living near Fletton House. I just wish to reassure you that we have decided to apply for this type of licence based on advice from the relevant statutory authorities.

This does not mean that Fletton House is going to have a bar selling alcohol and does not mean that there will be loud and raucous activities as part of our offering. Fletton House will be a community based facility and has been put in place for the benefit for all groups in Oundle.

On a normal week the building will close and be locked at 11.00pm Monday to Thursday, 8.30pm Friday, 7.00pm on a Saturday and will be closed all day Sunday. This will remain the case unless demand for opening on a Sunday becomes a pressure.

I just wanted to reassure all of you that whilst the building will be in use, we do not want it to have any adverse environmental effects on those living around it. The alcohol licence is being put in place so that newly weds in particular are able to have a celebratory drink before they move on to their reception in another venue.

Please do contact me at paulandrewking@btinternet.com if you have any further queries.

With my very best wishes

Paul King Mayor of Oundle » Less
