A motorcycle dealership in Bury St Edmunds has been granted a licence which means it will be able to serve alcohol in its restaurant and outside at events.

There had been some concerns raised about Krazy Horse’s application for a premises licence, but issues have been ironed out with objectors.

At a St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s Licensing Act Sub-Committee meeting on Wednesday councillors decided to approve the application, with a raft of conditions suggested by police attached.

Borough councillor Diane Hind objected on behalf of the Mildenhall Road Estate Residents’ Association saying the plans were against public safety, were likely to cause harm to children as well as being a public nuisance and would likely lead to an increase in criminal activity.

But a borough council spokeswoman said Mrs Hind had withdrawn her objection, as had the police, and yesterday Julia Dyball, clerk to Bury St Edmunds Town Council, said they would also be withdrawing theirs.

Natalie Moss, catering manager and licensee at Krazy Horse, said the venue, in Lamdin Road, would be serving alcohol in the restaurant as well as at the Thursday event nights, which will start up again in April.

Up until now they have had to use temporary licences for these nights.

She said: “This is a really good meeting place for people who love bikes. In the summer it’s nice if they want a cider or a barbecue and something to eat. The late nights have been fantastic. We have had no trouble.”

She said drinking in the car park area would only take place on these nights, adding: “We have got a security-guarded area so they cannot leave the area and it’s all plastic cups. We have got cars and bikes - we don’t want any problems either.”

Ms Moss said Krazy Horse had had mediation meetings with the police and Mildenhall Road estate residents about any concerns.

Mrs Dyball said the town council was reassured on hearing drinks would be served in plastic cups at outdoor events, which is also a licensing condition.

“We are completely happy,” she said.

CurveMotion, an activity centre popular with children, is near Krazy Horse, but had not objected to the premises licence.
