@lambeth_council sign petition to Save @Club414brixton

click here for the petition to save Club 414

Please register your objection via the planning application on the Lambeth Council site:
http://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=NQCLFWBO03I00

People have traveled from all of the UK and abroad to visit this iconic club for the quality events they have organised for decades now.
Club 414 is known to be a ‘home from home’ to many, with the warm reception given by the owners and staff as well as the love and care given to all who visit this club.

London is now crammed full of ‘trendy’ restaurants, bars and soulless venues providing dreary events with no substance. People will become bored of that trend, yet they have never tired of this club!

On this basis I strongly believe that this planning application is both an insult to London as well as those who have loyally frequented Brixton for this venue. It would be a ludicrous idea to allow this to happen as you will be carving yet another successful chunk of income from the economy.

More clubs are being closed down to make room for the same fashionable restaurants and bars across the UK. Our culture is being destroyed in the idea of profit making.
Saturating the market with the same will cause further profit losses not gains.

Removing venues which are so close to people’s hearts is becoming all too frequent and this venue is one which has stood its ground for more than 30 years and maintained a strong following while doing so.

Please add your signature to this petition to help us #save414 and share this petition on twitter, facebook and any other social media you can so we can get the word out!

@CllrTonyPage @readinglabour Cancel plans to switch off the traffic lights at the Broad St/West St junction

Click here for Petition to reinstate the traffic lights at Broad Street/West Street Junction.

Elderly and disabled people in particular would be put in danger. Generally, the loss of these lights would mean that pedestrians have to estimate whether or not they have time to cross the road before oncoming traffic reaches them. This is nerve wracking when you know that drivers may not allow for you to be slower than most.

In particular, blind people depend on the beeps that sound when the traffic lights are on green for pedestrians. Without those they are lost and have to depend on strangers who may know nothing about guiding them – nor care – to take them across. That at the same time as RBC is planning to cut spending on disabled adults supposedly in the interests of improving their independence!

We are believe there has already been a fatality at Jacksons corner with a similar idea, but we haven’t seen any solid evidence of this, only in an article about the noise about the Broad Street turn off in this article from Get Reading, so until we get any kind of confirmation of it we will put it down to hearsay for the time being (I.e. an article from the reading post)

Tony Page has also given other controversial decisions such as in Shinfield Road http://www.getreading.co.uk/news/local-news/shinfield-roads-lights-safe-here-6248017 and agreeing to the building of flats next to one (and few) of the towns independent music venues (which we covered a in a previous post)

We would say find out all the facts for yourself. We are posting this as its a controversial decision, and the council need all the facts at their finger tips as regards to what people feel about the decision. If your unhappy with it we urge you to sign the petition, if on the other hand you feel it has benefited the town, let Tony Page aware. His direct email is tony.page@reading.gov.uk
