The Canalside Bar and Grill in Castlecroft Lane is also seeking permission to update its layout and extend the licensable area, as well as amending and adding the new premises licence conditions.

Licensing bosses are due to discuss the application for the bar, which is located in the Tettenhall Regis ward, on Tuesday, September 26.

In a letter to council chiefs, one local resident who did not wish to be named said: “I have lived here for the past 20 years. I love the area and the views of the open fields and woodland with the Clee Hills in the far distance.

"However, this once peaceful existence is constantly being shattered.

“One weekend recently the noise was unbearable. They were both warm nights, but it was impossible to have our bedroom windows open. Dozens of people were outside, shouting to each other, singing and very, very loud.
