A Side Issue To The Smoking Ban
Clearly now that smokers will have to go outside from July 1st, another issue is going to come to the fore: noise. As this article demonstrates, local residents are beginning to complain about the extra noise late at night from pub goers who are enjoying their habit in the open air. I am a huge fan of extended opening hours, even if I don't personally get to enjoy them, so would be disappointed to see pubs being forced to close at 11pm simply because of this issue. However local residents' complaints must be taken seriously. I really don't want to take sides on this issue, but I do know I wouldn't ever buy a house in close proximity to a pub.
