On 14 May 2004, Robert Evans of Cwmbedw Rhydlewis, Llandysul, pleaded guilty at Cardigan Magistrates Court to an offence under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 after a 'rave' was held at the property on 21-22 July 2003.
As Bryan Thomas, director for environmental services and housing said: 'The event was held with little regard to the safety of people attending and even less consideration for the impact on residents of the area. These particular licensing requirements were introduced to ensure that events of this type can be properly regulated and that operating arrangements are agreed in advance. People need to understand that deliberately flouting such controls will not be tolerated.
'This case once again highlights the importance of partnership working between the Heddlu Dyfed Powys Police and Ceredigion CC. I would like to thank the police for their involvement in this matter and also the members of the public who supported the action taken.'
Mr Evans was find£500 and ordered to pay£550 costs.
