A kids’ party venue is having another go at applying for an alcohol licence after council officials refused the first due to noise complaints.
But the children’s events company have since resolved noise issues, and have been warned against cigarette litter or throwing 18th and 21st bashes as part of the conditions for holding the licence.
Stainland father-of-two Ijaz Khaliq, who runs Popkidz with wife Victoria Allen, said: “Obviously there aren’t going to be children smoking outside and we only throw parties for children up to 16.
“The licence is for parents and adults to be able to drink in the evenings.
“We are really hoping it will be granted this time.
“There were some issues last year with neighbours regarding noise.
“Luckily, this has been solved now and we haven’t had any complaints this year.”
Popkidz, which also runs party venues in Halifax and Wakefield, was the brainchild of Mr Khaliq after seeing his daughters have fun at a children’s disco on holiday.
The company, which next year hope to expand as a nationwide franchise, has been praised by celebrity and mum-of-five Kerry Katona.

She praised the company back in April after one her friend’s children attended the Westbourne Road venue for a party.
Mr Khaliq added: “We’ve been running for six years and are hoping to become a franchise next year.
“We just hope the council grant this application.
“I’ll be shocked if we don’t get it.”
The hearing will take place at the Town Hall on December 8.
