Broughty Ferry restaurant Forgan’s is being met with local resistance over its plans to extend its alcohol licence at the weekends.
The Brook Street eatery has submitted an application to Dundee City Council requesting a late licence for both Friday and Saturday nights.
It would allow the venue to continue serving alcohol up until 2am at the weekend, two hours longer than at present.
However, Pauline Marks, who lives on Brook Street, has written to the council voicing her objection to the plans.
Ms Marks, who says she has been in “dialogue and dispute” with Forgan’s since it opened, said bosses at the eatery only pay “lip service” to local residents.
She said in her letter to the council: “On a Friday and Saturday night, when the ceilidh band play, the noise I experience when trying to sleep is unacceptably high.
“Music stops at midnight which is bad enough . . . but the fact they want to extend hours until 2am is absolutely outrageous.”
In addition, she told the Tele that Forgan’s had made promises to look into soundproofing in order to reduce disruption.
She added: “They pay good lip service but there is absolutely no follow-up.”
The application will be discussed by the Dundee City licensing board on Thursday.
