Across the country pubs and clubs, gig venues and community centres are being threatened by new developments and residents noise complaints. However ridiculous the idea of someone moving into a flat in a busy area surrounded by pubs and clubs and then complaining about it is in recent years some very well established music venues and bars have been closed for these very reasons.
