Agent of Change Principle Hopes to Save Music Venues

Agent of Change Principle Hopes to Save Music Venues
A petition to adopt the agent of change principle has been started, aiming to adapt the planning laws which threaten closure of UK music venues.

The main idea of the Agent of Change Principle is that if a noise complaint arises, it is the party who changes the situation who will be responsible for dealing with the problem. For example, if you were to build a house next to a club, you would be responsible for soundproofing your building, as the club was already established when your house was built.

You can find out more about the principle and add your name to the petition at Change.org.

The Musician's Union supports the proposed regulations, saying it would stop a "worrying trend of long-established music venues being forced to close after only one or two complaints from neighbours".

The petition has also been backed by musicians including Frank Turner, who warns that it's not just live music venues under threat but pubs, theatres and arts centres too.
