Responding to Theresa May’s speech on the environment, and the government's 25 year plan, Bristol's Green MEP, Molly Scott Cato said: “The Tories plans are a tiny drop in a plastic filled ocean.

Councillors propose planning policy to protect music venues

Councillors propose planning policy to protect music venues

In response to a spate of local music venues raising the alarm about being faced with closure, Green Party Councillors in Bristol have called on the city’s elected Labour Mayor to adopt a planning policy known as the ‘agent of change’ principle. This principle, recently adopted by London Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan,(1) puts the onus for soundproofing on new residential developments, which must shoulder responsibility for compliance when situated near an existing music venue. Similarly, if a music venue opens in a residential area, it too would be responsible for complying with residential requirements. According to the London Mayor, “developers building flats near existing venues will need to ensure that residents are not unduly affected by sound from the venue, and that may include paying for soundproofing.”
