Hearing to decide if BrewDog can open a bar on Ipswich Waterfront postponed
A hearing to determine whether Scottish beer firm BrewDog can open a bar on Ipswich Waterfront has been pushed back so that more information can be provided to objecting locals.
Ipswich Borough Council’s licensing committee had been due to meet at 2pm on Monday, October 11, to determine the craft beer company’s bid to open a bar in the former cycle cafe unit close to The Winerack.
But that meeting has now been postponed.
The bid had received a number of objections around noise, waste and pollution concerns.
The council said: “This decision [to postpone the hearing] was taken by the licensing authority after representations were made by the applicant.
“These representations explained that a meeting had been held with residents by the applicant and that following this meeting the applicant wished to postpone the hearing to enable them to provide more information.”
It is not yet clear when the hearing will be held.
It is likely more information on mitigation measures will be provided then.
If approved, it would be the first bar for the company in Suffolk, with Norwich and Cambridge currently the closest.
