Hotel and music venue 'can work together' on noise concerns

A major hotel chain is considering pulling out of a move to Newport city centre over noise concerns, BBC Wales has learned.

Site developer Richard Hayward said Premier Inn was worried about noise from nearby nightclub Warehouse 54, and options for sound-proofing were being considered.

Mr Hayward is meeting hotel chain representatives in early May.

The owner of Warehouse 54, Iftekhar Harris, said he had lowered the volume of the music and insists both can work alongside each other if compromises are made.
