The County You Live, Work And Play
New Nightclub Approved
A new nightclub for Hamilton looks set to be opening up in the town, while creating 35 jobs.
In a delegated report, planners recommended the change of use from offices on the first floor at 140 Quarry Street – above the current Mavrix bar and Hamilton Credit Union – to a nightclub.
The application for the new nightspot was submitted by Lanarkshire-based company Northburn Capital.
It is understood the proposed opening hours are 7pm to 3am, Wednesday to Sunday.
The application was subject to noise impact assessments, which were carried out in January and February of this year, and were found to require insulation works and the use of a noise limiter in the premises as part of the planning conditions. Consultations were also carried out with Roads and Transportation Services (Hamilton area) and Environmental Service.
Neighbour notification letters were also sent to residents living in nearby flats on the opposite side of Quarry Street. However, there were no objections to the new nightclub.
In a delegation report, South Lanarkshire Council’s delegating officer Steven Clark said: “The applicant seeks approval for the change of use of first-floor offices to a nightclub at 140 Quarry Street, Hamilton.
“The proposal will have no significant adverse impact on the character of Hamilton town centre. The proposal complies with the provisions of Policies 4 and 8 of the South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan and associated Supplementary Guidance.
“There are no additional material considerations which would justify the refusal of planning permission.”
