The ABC is reporting that The Independent Liquor and Gaming authority have imposed three new noise restrictions on the CBD Hotel in Hunter Street in Newcastle. The restrictions come after noise complaints by neighbouring residents.
The ABC reports that due to the restrictions, patrons of the CBD hotel will now be banned from entering the courtyard area after 10:00pm.

Residents move to, and live next door to existing venues because they like the location, and being part of a vibrant city culture and then complain about the things that help make it vibrant. Amplified music, events, large gatherings of people and activity after dark.
What do you think? Do you think it’s ok to move next door to an existing venue and then complain about the noise. We’re keen to see your responses.
