Has anyone else noticed the races taking place at the car park on Ewer Street.

On Sunday morning the whole area was littered with rubbish, leaflets, happy gas viles, trucks and lorries parked on the pavements and the area across the road sealed off with police tape.

I notice in the past local residents were going to review the licence:

Any other local residents got any thoughts?

The taped off area last Sunday was a result of a stabbing. The people involved had been to the rave!

It doesn't say the people had been to the rave, did you see it somewhere else?

I believe that the car park doesn't have planning permission to be run as a nightclub so although it does have a licence, without planning permission, it shouldn't be operating.

A neighbour at Rowland Hill House who is an early bird said people were parking everywhere, double parking on the pavements and in our forecourt and in Nelson Square. There were people all over the place, shouting, and car horns going off. Neighbour said this all started around 5.30am. No one can say that the people involved in whatever happened were from the late night clubbers, random passsers by or indeed, late night / early morning guests of the Travelodge. There was rubbish everywhere, litter, leaflets, those little silver canisters with the nitrogen oxide, and it was noisy. There have been raves at Ewer Street before but according to early bird neighbour, the aftermath was nothing compared to the chaos last Sunday morning

Might be worth letting the local councillors know as the police said they were happy with the way the event went.
