Plans to reopen a bar in a market town will depend on the outcome of a licence meeting next month.

The Mayfair in Bungay opened on a temporary licence on Friday, December 8, after a frantic week of 15-hour days transforming a former newsagent into an entertainment venue.

Owners Silas Rayner and his wife Daisy, who run the popular Maui Waui festival near Dereham, even created a Winter Wonderland and Santa's Grotto at the back of the premises for the festive period.

But two weeks to the day after they opened, on December 22, East Suffolk Council revoked the business's temporary licence after a series of noise complaints from residents along Broad Street.

In February Mr Rayner applied to East Suffolk Council for a full licence for the premises.

After the notice period for representations to be submitted ended the council has confirmed the outcome of the application will depend on a licencing sub-committee's meeting next month.

The meeting will be held on Friday, April 5.

A spokesman said: "The licensing team has received a number of representations in response to the application.

"A licensing sub-committee hearing will be held on Friday 5 April to determine the application."
