London’s Ministry of Sound is being threatened again this year as London mayor Boris Johnson is being asked to call in the vote that was denied last year allowing a developer to build luxury flats across the street from the club. If the mayor does permit the developer to go through with the plans, it would almost certainly mean that the Ministry Of Sound would have to close this year since as those of us living in New York know, you can’t have a nightclub anywhere within a stones throw of residential housing without issues. Please read below for more information regarding this, and let’s all do our part to help them out.
London Mayor Boris Johnson is about to grant planning permission for luxury flats opposite Ministry of Sound. If built, these will force our iconic 20 year old club to close, with the loss of hundreds of jobs.
Last year, some of the world’s biggest DJs and musicians, as well as over 26,000 people, joined our campaign to let Southwark Council know that these plans would destroy a global institution. We were delighted and thought our future was secured when Southwark Council’s Planning Committee voted overwhelmingly to reject the plans.
Now the developer has convinced Boris Johnson to “call in” the application and hopes to overturn this democratic decision.
Don’t let Boris shut us down
2012 is the year of the London Elections. This year above all the Mayor has reason to listen to Londoners. Together we can show Boris that this city will not be the same without Ministry of Sound and there are major flaws with this development.
