Licence Application

The BNP’s Deputy Leader and Press Officer, Simon Darby, has claimed on his blog that the BNP “have now heard that the authorities are happy for the event to go ahead.” Exactly which “authorities” he is referring to is unclear, but he claims, “The only restriction will be noise-monitoring equipment which will be put in place at either end of the site.” These conditions are considerably less onerous than those the police called for at the recent licensing panel at Ripley Town Hall. It’s possible, of course, that Darby’s simply lying, but it may be the first indication that the licence application for the festival will go back to Amber Valley Borough Council (who only adjourned after the last meeting) for reconsideration.
