LONGWOOD residents are hoping their objections to a proposed license extension at a local pub will see the application rejected.
The Rose and Crown at Thornhill Road, Longwood, wishes to stay open until 1.30am with alcohol served and music played until 1am, seven days a week.
A petition objecting to the proposal has 52 signatories and will be studied by the Licensing Panel before it makes a decision at Huddersfield the Town Hall today.
The residents are concerned about the increased noise and light pollution which may result from the changes to the licence.
In a letter accompanying the petition, residents claim the proposed changes to allow live music and dancing until 1am during the working week would be anti-social and disruptive to normal working life.
The pub is located in a residential area and close to a nursing home.
The letter, signed on behalf of the residents by Mrs Deborah Dufton who lives at Thornhill Road, also warns: "There is a possibility of increased traffic to the village, which is likely to create a road safety problem."
The current licence permits sale of alcohol up until 11pm with 20 minutes addition drinking up time, and to play only recorded music.
The application for the changes is made by The Phoenix Club Company.
