Whickham's Chase Park will soon be granted a Premises License to allow events containing plays, films, music and dancing to be held in the park.
Barring objections, from 1st April 2009, groups, such as the scouts, which hold events in the park will no longer have to apply for a temporary event license. There will be no restrictions as to the number of people that can attend.
Some residents may remember that a fayre in the park had to be cancelled last year, due in part to license issues.
"I am very pleased that Chase Park will be getting this license," said Councillor Peter Craig. "Previously the only park to have this license was Saltwell Park."
