Waterfront clubbers face noise clampdown

Rowdy revellers around a Norwich nightclub are to be targeted as part of a clampdown on noise and anti-social behaviour.

Rowdy revellers around a Norwich nightclub are to be targeted as part of a clampdown on noise and anti-social behaviour.

The scheme, funded by Norwich City Council and supported by the Norwich City Centre Licensing Forum and the police's safer neighbourhoods teams, has been introduced following a series of complaints about

people leaving pubs, clubs, restaurants

and takeaways near the Waterfront in King Street.

Sgt Peter Sharples said: "This is a really useful campaign which has the potential to be very positive in reducing noise and incidents of low-level anti-social behaviour which really affects people's quality of life.

"In the city centre local people told us they were becoming annoyed with club-goers being noisy and rowdy when they left the Waterfront in the early hours of the morning.

"The Waterfront is located away from the main pub and club-going centre of the city

in a residential area and the Husshh campaign has given us the ideal tools to work positively with the venue."

Posters have been delivered to the Waterfront and these will compliment the work of door staff who have for several

months been walking the length of the street after 1am when people are leaving the premises.

Staff dressed in high visibility yellow jackets and equipped with Pub Watch radios

will monitor anyone behaving in a rowdy manner.
