Cornbury Park Licence Application
for all events, from 10.00 to 02.00 hrs, on any or all of the seven days of the week
provision of late night refreshment - on any or all of the seven days of the week from 23.00 to 05.00 hrs
supply of alcohol - on any or all of the seven days of the week – 00.00 to 00.00 hrs – 24 hours a day
10 events would not exceed a maximum capacity of 5,000.
To put the noise issue into perspective – measurements are taken from the nearest inhabited dwelling, which, for this year’s Cornbury Festival, was at the front of Wellington Cottages in Hixet Wood.
The Environmental Health Officer has informed the Town Council that at no point did sound levels exceed 55 decibels. National guidelines suggest that, for an event like that, 65 decibels is acceptable. Decibels work on a logarithmic scale, which means that an increase of 10 decibels means a doubling of the volume, similarly the decrease by 10 decibels means a reduction in half of the volume.
