    do you have a source?

    the stuff that's been knocked down already is 199-209 city road (for student flats) and that development doesn't include the gaiety.

    not that i know what a building prepped for demolition looks like, but there's only minor scaffolding, the building's not gated off and northcote lane's still open around the back. small hope?

    source was someone in the know to do with a business not far away
    no links or anything
    not sure if demolition has to be applied for in the same way as planning applications?

    you'd have thought so. not turned up anything official so far. word is the facade at least may be protected. it looked to me that maybe the scaffolding is protection against the works next door.

    Think someone just died on the building site next to the Traders! (new student flats)

    Loads of people there now, he came out sheet over his head and the ambulance isn't rushing off!

    keep you updated, been loving watching it be built. :(

    For fuck's sake:

    "The future of one of Cardiff’s live music venues is under threat after it was served with a noise abatement notice.

    Fuel Rock Club on Womanby Street has been served with the notice after receiving a complaint from a resident who recently moved into nearby apartments."

    The future of another Cardiff music venue could be under threat

    The response should be; "You moved to Womanby St, you selfish fuck, what did you expect?"

    I am sick and tired of this. First of all it happened with The Point down the bay and just recently we've had a situation in Llandaff whereby a retired judge and his barrister wife moved into the village and tried to get the open mic night at the Llandaff institute stopped due to noise, happily they failed but they did succeed in getting the Chinese restaurant to spend a lot of money (£1,000's I believe) having their ductwork extended due to the 'smell of frying oil'. Bear in mind that premises has been operating for years with no complaints. So now some cunt is trying it with yet another venue. The council need to grow some balls and stick up for local businesses. I wouldn't mind betting that the complainer is well-heeled. It seems to be a common theme with these arseholes.

    Well yes maybe but it can't hurt to have them batting on the good side.

    Who knows? Maybe it hadn't come to their attention before. I am just as likely as cynical as you possibly even more so but the more people with any influence fighting to stop this shit, the better.

    they aren't fighting tho, they've seen something popular and said something like 'we'll agree and see what we can do within existing frameworks'

    e2a and see what can be done about changing the laws

    no promises
