We call upon Brighton & Hove City Council to fully implement the Agent of Change provision in paragraph 182 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) in local planning law in order to protect our music venues. Planning law should put an obligation on developers to provide suitable mitigation in new developments such as installing sufficient sound proofing. Agent of Change makes it clear it is the responsibility of the developer and not existing music venues to keep new developments protected from noise pollution. Current draft provisions in new planning law (City Plan part 2) should be amended to adopt this obligation.
Whether you've already signed up to the campaign or aren't ready just yet, you can still help encourage other people to sign up.
