To remove late night antisocial behavior from the areas around pubs and clubs and reduce noise pullution for local residents.
The current regulations have moved smokers from inside pubs and clubs to areas outside.
On many occasions they become very noisy due to the amount of alcohol consumed. They also take their drinks outside with them and stay on after the pub or club has closed.
This regulation has turned our quiet village centre into noisy no go area for the elderly and is causing late night disturbance to the local residents.
The regulation should be changed to allow one room to be set aside for smokers only.
