Our Expert Evidence provides a positive outcome for our client.

Chris Chittock, Managing Director of Dragonfly Consulting, has provided expert witness evidence in a licensing appeal at Cardiff Magistrates Court. Chris Chittock provided expert evidence to the court on the potential noise impact of the proposal for a late night food take-away next to a large hotel in Cardiff city centre. Chris provided evidence to the court regarding his concerns that the noise assessment submitted in support of the licensing application was not sufficiently robust and did not demonstrate that the proposal for a take-away open until 6am would offer sufficient protection from noise for the guests of the hotel in order to prevent a public nuisance occurring.
The Court agreed with the concerns raised by Dragonfly Consulting and Cardiff City Council as to the potential negative noise impact of the proposed take-away  and dismissed the appeal.
