“On Wednesday 10th January 2018 the Planning (Agent of Change) Bill, which is a Private Members Bill, had its first reading in the House of Commons.
Rt Hon John Spellar (MP) said that the Bill is “…designed to protect existing music venues from closure or crippling costs arising from development of new residential properties in their vicinity, especially over questions of noise…”
The Bill will place the onus upon property developers to take into account existing music venues in the area of a proposed development
