Scarborough’s Water Park will open until 10pm seven nights a week following a ruling by Scarborough Borough Council’s Licensing Sub-committee today (Wednesday).

The committee also granted Alpamare UK Ltd permission to open until 2am on six occasions each year.

The approval came after the operator reduced its intended opening hours, it had wanted to stay open until 11.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, after neighbours raised concerns.

More than 300 objections were submitted to the council and a dozen people turned out at city hall to speak out against the plans.

But in a dramatic move the operator changed its application in order to address the concerns.
