A Chinese restaurant’s plan to open until 5am every day of the week has created a fierce backlash from nearby residents.
Those living in Steeple View and The Cloisters near Tang restaurant, in Fylde Road, say the noise and disturbance will cause problems in the area.
Councillor John Swindells and councillor Carl Crompton say they’ve been inundated with objections to the proposals from Tang.
A special PACT meeting has been called for University ward residents to consider how they will object to the plans.
Cllr Swindells said: “We’ve had lots of complaints through and I understand the council’s licensing department has too.
“This application sees the restaurant wanting to serve alcohol until 4.30am. Some of the bedroom windows in this area are within 10 metres of the restaurant.
“There will be a special PACT meeting to consider our response to this application.”
The meeting will be held at St Walburges church hall from 6pm on Thursday 30 July.
Tang is currently allowed to open until 2.30am on Fridays and Saturdays, with 1.30am opening on Thursdays and 12.30am the rest of the week.
