A Birmingham pub's application for a latenight drinks licence has triggered a recordbreaking 150 objections.
The avalanche of complaints about the Sheldon Inn is the largest number received by the City Council since the new Licensing Act came into force earlier in the year.
People living close to the pub, in Cranes Park Road, Sheldon, are complaining about excessive existing noise at night, loud music, drunkenness, vandalism and anti- social behaviour.
They fear the problems will get worse if a request by the pub's owners, the Spirit Group, for a drinks and entertainment licence until 1am Thursday to Saturday is successful.
The pub also wants to open until 2am on bank holidays and saints' days.
In a letter to the council licensing committee, Carol and Anthony Batt, who live in Warmington Road, said: "This public house has caused nothing but grief to the residents.
"We cannot believe they are further antagonising their neighbours by applying for a licence to play loud music until the early hours."
Austin and Eunice Last, of Warmington Road, wrote: "We would like to see the closure of the premises as the business is now an infringement of our right to a peaceful existence where we can be left to enjoy our homes and families without hindrance."
The Spirit Group, in written evidence to the licensing committee, insists it does not encourage excessive drinking.
The licensing committee will consider the application today.
