A community hall has been allowed to keep its licence despite repeated noise disturbance offences.
Byron Hall, in Harrow Leisure Centre, Christchurch Avenue, was given 12 strict conditions after councillors reviewed its licence last Monday.
Between August 2006 and August 2007, 54 crimes at the venue were reported to Harrow Police, including robberies, assaults, drug possession, burglary and indecent assaults.
The centre, which is run by Leisure Connection on behalf of Harrow Council, will now have to prevent local residents from being disturbed by loud music between 10pm and 1am and will also have to ensure there is a ratio of one door super-visor to every 100 people at functions.
Since January 2008 there have been eight visits by council officials following complaints by residents about noise levels.
Michael Allner, who lives next to Byron Hall, said: "Initially I tried to keep a record of all of the excessive noise events but gave up when it became so frequent.
"January this year I called the noise team because the music from the hall was so loud it was making the glass in my windows vibrate.
"They arrived and managed to reduce the music. However as soon as they were out of earshot the volume was turned straight back to the previous level."
Sergeant Carl Davies, of Harrow Police, said: "I wanted to suspend the place's licence until the conditions were imposed but they [the council] didn't, so that was disappointing.
"They argued that as 1.5million people used the venue each year some crime would be expected, but the volume and types of crime are not acceptable."
Councillor Chris Mote, portfolio holder for community and cultural services, said: "We have a duty to ensure those living near Harrow Leisure Centre aren't disturbed by noise from functions, and that's what these additional conditions are designed to ensure.
"We set high standards for external contractors who run facilities on our behalf and we will be working closely with Leisure Connection to see these are met."
The new licensing conditions also mean all drinks have to consumed in plastic glasses and CCTV cameras will have to be installed alongside a noise control device.
The hall will continue to open until 11.30pm from Monday until Thursday and until midnight from Friday to Sunday. The venue is also allowed open until 2am on religious festivals, including Diwali, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and Navaratri.
