MANAGERS of a £20m hotel set to open on Monday will give the parish council a number to call if it gets too noisy.

Courtyard by Marriott is putting the finishing touches to its new four-star 170-bedroom hotel in Milton Gate near Didcot.

This morning it was given permission to play music inside until 2am every day and outside until 10pm as part of a licence granted by Vale of White Horse district councillors.

Milton Parish Council had said its councillors worried about the potential impact of noise from the hotel.

The chairman of the council, Zena Hoskins, said residents already suffered with noise from a nearby train line.

She said they were also affected by Truck Festival in Steventon during the summer.

To allay councillors’ fears, the management of the new hotel agreed to give the parish council a number to call if the volume ever gets too much.

The hotel chain also said the new building has triple glazed windows and pointed out that it would not want to create any undue noise because that could disrupt its paying guests.

Sutton Courtenay Parish Council had added its own submission in support of Milton Parish Council’s concerns on Sunday, but Vale officers said that was sent in too late to consider it during the meeting.
