HUNTINGDON'S only nightclub has closed and is unlikely to reopen, according to its owner. The club's proprietor David O'Brian has been in a long dispute with Huntingdonshire District Council over noise issues. But the row ended in court last Thursday when Ethos nightclub - formerly known as Oliver's - was closed after a judge dismissed its appeal against a noise abatement order imposed by HDC In reality the order requires the club to either turn down its music or invest a large amount of money in additional noise insulation - both of which are unacceptable, according to Mr O'Brian. HDC began a prosecution against the club after a complaint from a neighbour in December 2005, before issuing a noise abatement order against Mr O'Brian in 2006. After a lengthy appeal process against the order, Mr O'Brian's case was dismissed at Peterborough Magistrates Court last week, with HDC awarded £36,000 in legal costs. He said he was devastated by the decision, which has forced him to close the club and left him considering the future of the nightspot.
