Staff resign from Cardiff's 10 Feet Tall over planning proposals


What a scummy landlord and big up the staff solidarity.

Staff at a music venue have all resigned after they found out a planning application had been submitted to turn the premises into a commercial unit.

In a statement posted on its website, staff at 10 Feet Tall in Cardiff said they had not been told of the plans, which came as a "great shock to us".

It said as of Monday, the "entire team" was resigning.

Owners of the venue could not be reached for a comment.

Planning documents detail the proposed change from a nightclub to commercial use, which applicants said "should be welcomed" as it would "improve" the balance of land uses.
A restaurant is proposed for the basement and ground floors, while the applicant "envisages letting the commercial areas" which could be "a dental practice or hair or beauty salon".
