Brixton's Club 414 threatened with closure

    It's a wonderful old school, inclusive, super friendly venue. Staff who work in local bars get in free. It would be utterly heartbreaking to see an independent venue that has stuck with Brixton through the tough times being turned into yet another cocktail bar for the well off.

    Have some more ire here. Just heard the council have approved change of use of one of the shops in Electric Ave to become a restaurant despite many residents and a councillor objecting:

    17/03110/FUL | Change of use from Retail (Use Class A1) to Restaurant (Use Class A3) with installation of timber windows and door to front elevation. | 34-36 Electric Avenue London SW9 8JR

    Bye bye Brixton. Hello Clapham High St...

    Has anyone contacted the Music Venue Trust for help? They have been instrumental in campaigning for independent venues to keep their premises. They have emergency response information on the website. I don't know the owners, but if someone does maybe they can get in touch?

    Music Venue Trust

    Or Twitter: @musicvenuetrust

    That's really awful news, I've been to the 414 many times in the past and I know how popular it still is with the techno and trance crowd, it's a great little venue with a friendly atmosphere, unique really.
    It makes me very angry that it can be pushed aside for some cocktail bar :mad: - there are already enough of them in London, for people that want that sort of thing.
    Presumably it's all about £££££ as usual.

    What a load of fucking wank

    Buzz article is getting a lot of shares on Facebook, for all the good it will probably do.

    Sad!

    I think it's important to also share details on how to object otherwise peple will assume it's a done deal.

    Reading up on the cocktail bar company that wants to replace long-standing 414.
    Be At One brand make big deal about how they aren't some anonymous brand but want to be seen as a "local". Yet they want to kick out long-standing "local" to get into Brixton. Reading up on them and the use PR advice when they open a new bar. This attempt to move to Brixton isn't in line with the brand identity that they are portraying in interviews. Perhaps Locke and his chums don't give a shit. Interviews in the trade are PR bollox.

    Objection lodged.

    A lot more objections have gone in. Some using the template letter. Interesting to read the objections. Shows the strength of feeling.

    This is clear cut case of gentrification. Pushing out long-standing local business for high end cocktail bar. It's sickening to see what's happening to Brixton.

    Please go to the 'Lambeth Planning Database Site' type in the clubs address. The letter is in 'Documents'.
    Objections can be made from here too should you wish.
    We thank you for your interest with the ongoing situation we are experiencing.

    the letter from the owners of the 414 club is really thorough and sets out clear reasons for why the application should be rejected. However, so many of the objections on the site won't be considered by Lambeth Planning as they don't contain any planning based objections. Objections have to be based on planning and policy grounds.

    If you go to the planning database and put in the postcode (SW9 8LF), the letter from 414 is under the documents tab
