A fast food restaurant is to have its licence reviewed after an alleged series of noise disturbances.

The licence of McDonald’s in Enstone Court, near Wilby Way, Wellingborough, is to be looked at by councillors after an interested party applied for a review.

The application was made on the grounds that the licensing objective of the prevention of public nuisance was not being met.

Application documents say this is evidenced “by a number of incidents of noise disturbance” between July 1 last year and the date of the application.

Wellingborough Council will conduct the licence review, as the restaurant is in Wellingborough.

The local authority’s licensing manager Amanda Wilcox said the review could have several outcomes, including the possibility of the licence being changed or revoked.

She said: “We are in the consultation part of the licensing review process.

“The next stage will be a meeting of the licensing sub-committee, which is made up of three members of the council’s licensing committee, and this hearing will probably take place in August.

“All involved parties will be invited to attend, and the sub-committee will hear all of the evidence before deciding on one of three options: either to leave the licence as it is, or to impose conditions on the licence such as earlier closing times, or to revoke the licence completely.”

People can have their say on the review by submitting their views in writing by Monday, July 16.

To submit a representation on the review write to the licensing manager at Wellingborough Council, Swanspool House, Doddington Road, Wellingborough, NN8 1BJ.

The application for the licence review can be looked at during normal office hours at the Swanspool House offices.

The Telegraph contacted McDonald’s in Enstone Court for a comment but they did not receive a response.
