Music pub wins battle against development of nearby flats

The Court of Appeal has ruled in favour of the George Tavern, Stepney East London by overturning a planning decision to allow new flats to be built in close proximity to the venue.  The Licensee had claimed the flats would lead to noise complaints from new neighbours.  It is reported that the Judges recognised the importance of the historic George Tavern which was a local pub with live music and campaigners have hailed the victory as a landmark moment for traditional live music venues which have been forced to close due to the risk of noise complaints from new builds.

Planning guidance now urges Developers to install soundproofing in new builds near music venues.

The campaign was probably quite helpfully backed by Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, Georgia May Jagger and Ian McKellen!
