Trowbridge Cricket Club gets the go-ahead to go live again

This Is Wiltshire: Colin Poplett of Trowbridge Cricket Club Colin Poplett of Trowbridge Cricket Club

Trowbridge Cricket Club can hold live events once again after undertaking soundproofing work in its pavilion.

Following a complaint from neighbour Tracy Gates, of Downhayes Road, over noise levels, Wiltshire Council removed the club’s right to host live and recorded amplified music events.

In June, after hearings at North West Wiltshire Magistrates’ Court, a compromise was reached that the club could host six live music events a year on the ground floor of their pavilion providing that soundproofing work was carried out.

Colin Poplett, the club’s vice-chairman, said: “It’s been a long hard slog. We are of course delighted with the result, but also not at all happy with the council throughout the whole of this process.

“This whole farrago has cost the club in monetary terms at least £45,000 that we know of and possibly much more in lost potential bookings.“
