A PUB'S controversial bid to open later and serve alcohol for longer is set to be decided this month.

The Plough and Furrow in Dereham has applied to Breckland Council to extend its licence.

But nearby residents, who say the noise of drunken customers keeps them awake, have objected to the move, and one letter claims their lives would be made unbearable.

Owner Joanne Cross wants to host live music from Monday to Thursday 12pm to 1am, Friday to Saturday 12pm to 2am, Sunday from 12pm to 12am, play recorded music from Monday to Wednesday 9am to 1am, Thursday from 9am to 2am, Friday to Saturday 9am to 3am, Sunday 12pm to 12am.

She also hopes to serve alcohol from Monday to Wednesday 9am to 1am, Thursday 9am to 2am, Friday to Saturday 9am to 3am and Sunday 12pm to 12am, and open the pub on Monday to Wednesday from 9am to 1.30am, Thursday 9am to 2.30am, Friday to Saturday 9am to 3.30am and Sunday from 12pm to 12.30am.

Police initially objected to the application but after some of the times for late-night refreshment were altered following an agreement between officers and the owner, the objection was withdrawn.

Environmental health

has suggested measures to reduce noise, and recomm-ended signs to remind customers to respect residents should be put up.

Breckland's licensing sub- committee will decide whether to grant the licence on Monday, June 23.
