The famous XOYO nightclub is part of the successful Colombo group of clubs and bars, who have used our professional services in the past with many of their premises with successful results. Following discussion about a proposed planning application for later hours for this club, the local authority had concerns over the potential for noise and disturbance to nearby residents.
Shaun Murkett Acoustic Consultants Ltd were called in to investigate and commissioned to undertake late night environmental noise surveys, and to compile comprehensive noise reports with detailed recommendations to resolve the various noise issue. Our noise reports were issued to a high professional standard that would support the clients’ case in court or appeal if called upon.
Working closely with the Planning Barrister and Colombo management team, our noise reports with the planning application were submitted to the local authority. The planning application was finally successful, and formal permission was given for XOYO to operate to 5 am for both planning and on the premises licence. With our sound limiter calibration certificates, and all the relevant permissions in place on the premises licence, XOYO can now operate safely to 5 am in the heart of Shoreditch.

Shaun Murkett Acoustics have been very helpful over the years, working on
the noise issues for most of our bars and clubs. Shaun did some excellent noise reports for XOYO , and was completely professional throughout the application. Their comprehensive reports and good working relationship with the legal team and
local authority was essential for us to achieve a 5 am licence.
Highly recommended for any noise or licensing issue with bars and clubs.
