THE LICENCE of a popular east London venue The Troxy has been changed after neighbours complained about noise, parking and anti-social behaviour from people arriving and leaving the venue.

Residents handed in a dossier of photos and video footage to members of Tower Hamlets council's licensing sub-committee which decided a change of hours to 11pm on Sunday to Thursday nights and 2am on Friday and Saturday nights. The art deco building on Commercial Road in Limehouse will then have another 30 minutes to close.

The sub-committee also imposed conditions including taxi marshals for Friday and Saturday night, signs to remind customers to leave quietly within the residential area and controlled times for deliveries and rubbish disposal. The Troxy will also have to market itself as a no parking facility.

Elaine King of the Pitsea Residents Association which triggered the review said: "The decision is a good one."

She hoped that residents will be able to enjoy some piece and quiet.
