COUNCILLORS meet this week to decide whether to give a Huddersfield rock music festival the green light.
The Timeless Festival was held for the first time last summer and attracted about 2,500 people to Ravensknowle Park, Moldgreen.
This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, September 6.
Last year's event was hailed a success, but people living nearby complained of booming noise and the behaviour of a few revellers.
Kirklees Council's Licensing and Safety Committee decides the matter on Wednesday.
One letter of objection has been written to committee members, by a male householder living near the park.
"I think there will be more people who agree with him," conceded Clr Roger Battye, who sits on the committee and helped organise last year's festival.
"It was very successful, but a lot of local residents thought it rather loud."
The event was backed by the Dalton, Rawthorpe and Moldgreen regeneration group (Dram) and the Huddersfield Pride regeneration group.
Kirklees Youth Service is applying for this year's licence.
Organisers received four complaints about last year's event.
"I didn't hear of any trouble at all. From a Dram point of view, it was regarded as a very big success," added Clr Battye,
But he said lessons had been learned from last year.
"We have to listen carefully to the objections," said Clr Battye.
"The way we align and set up the stages is designed to actually reduce noise levels. You want to keep sound in an area where it's being listened to!
"Last time, I think the people on Wakefield Road bore the brunt of any noise there was."
Lyndon Peasley, public relations co-ordinator for Huddersfield Pride, said councillors could technically refuse to give the event the go-ahead.
"But it's very unlikely. It's not really going to happen," he said.
He added that he was saddened by the objection.
The festival will cost £25,000 to stage. The main stage is scheduled to close at 9.30pm and the second stage at 8pm. Last year's event over-ran slightly.
