North Somerset Council fears the party may stop some people from sleeping nearby.


A Bristol company’s plans to hold a staff party and music event over two nights in woodland near Brockley and Wrington could cause a ‘public nuisance’.

That is the view of North Somerset Council’s officers ahead of councillors making a decision on a temporary event notice tomorrow (Monday).

Arcadia wishes to hold the private party for friends and staff at Wrington Warren Woodland on Friday and Saturday.

It plans to play music and sell alcoholic and soft drinks from 6pm until midnight on Friday and from 6pm-6am on the second night.

Police have no objections, but the environment health team at the council believes the party has ‘potential to cause public nuisance’ as there is no plan to limit the music volume, which it fears would ‘likely cause noise and sleep disturbance’ to neighbours.

Councillors Ericka Blades, James Tonkin and Roz Willis will make the final decision at 10.30am at Weston Town Hall.
