A Catch Up
Ok just been going over the consultations and ongoing council issues. This is just a reminder to all the readers so where they are able to comment/get involved they can. And people remember if you don't get involved don't complain if we lose venues. I will put my opinion in each but it is only my opinion.
Tower Hamlets part two, second consultation on SEV this time trying to force a framework through that would see venues closed if they are near churches, schools or hospitals. Link Here This is for residents, businesses, sev owners and sev employees.
Leed has a consultation going and once again it is about trying to railroad through changes. It is an abuse of power but what appears to be a christian councillor and an old friend whi is a Leeds MP. Link Here this will take you to the page where all the consultations are.
Hounslow has required people to e-mail in and there is no acknowledgement or any response to e-mails it seems. Not sure what is going on but there is not current clubs so this could get pushed through as no one is going to challenge it.
There is a club applying to open in Canterbury but with all the issues around strip clubs I would not be putting money on the club getting anywhere.
So to things that have happend. Coventry has gone with a nil policy that allows the existing Club to continue operating. Also Bedford has gone with a nil policy and this is down to lobbying by the Christian Legal Centre but as far as I can tell no actual consultation took place. It is very tempting to see if we could get enough people protesting to get the council to rethink?
Things keep on and we do not see everything. I personally have health issues so I may disappear at times. Which means we are very reliant on the people out there spotting things and passing information on. firstname.lastname@example.org is checked everyday so if you spot anything or want particular issues discussed please mail me.
