The e-petition backs the introduction of a mandatory noise complaint waiver for anyone who moves into a property close to a live music venue.
The e-petition states:
“There are innumerate cases of people knowingly moving within close proximity of live music venues, only to try to have their licenses revoked or have them closed completely when they take exception to the noise.
It is extremely detrimental to the UK's entertainment industry, particularly on a grassroots level, when all the music venues start disappearing. Music is a key British export and to endanger our strong national artist community is to endanger a key British industry.
As such, anyone who wishes to buy or rent a property within a determined distance of a music venue should have to read and sign legislature that waives their right to complain about the noise from the nearby venue. If they do not wish to be bothered by something that was a fixture of the community long before they arrived, they should not move there in the first place.”
Ministry Of Sound was in danger earlier this year, as was the historic live music venue Night & Day Café in Manchester.
