**REDACTED** With regard to the new application we have no objection to business hours being extended from to match other businesses within the business centre. However we would like to make an objection to the proposed change of closing hours - at present the Box Social operates until 9pm, closes at 9:30 pm, the business gates are locked at 10pm. With the new plan drinks will be stopped serving at 10, the premises will be closed at 10:30 and the gates will not shut until 11:00. By changing the business to a Micro Pub, the number of people and noise will be excessive. People are already sitting outside of the premises throughout the day and the open windows allow for volume to be heard. We have experienced an increase in noise and anti social behaviour as recent as this last week where customers were drunk in the street after leaving the premises and were seen to urinate on the perimeter wall, stand in the middle of the road and actually kick a parked car. This took place outside our premises which is approximately 40 meters from the entrance. Allowing the brewery to further their operating hours would in turn result in further disruption and damages to property owners within the local area. N/A
