I live just down the road from Albert Barnes though cannot make the meeting.
I've not experienced any unacceptable antisocial behaviour from the club patrons and most of the events are well run with well-managed queueing.
Perhaps events without such defined end times could be prioritised (ie club nights where people gradually leave, rather than concerts where they all leave at once) to limit traffic impacts.
is a badly planned space. The development was approved by the planning committee a few years ago despite the opposition of local residents such as myself who objected to shoehorning 50-odd flats onto a basketball court. The landscaping hasn't been well maintained and since it has no arches opening onto it was always going to be dark and unwelcoming. The developer ought to be looking after it.
is an important part of E&C's heritage and future. It's not easy to keep a large and old building running and these events will be vital to its staying here.
I for one would not like to see it curtailed or subject to unviable operating conditions and fully support its current operation.
