MINISTRY OF SOUND SAVED...
It's a victory for clubbers worldwide. Ministry of Sound’s London superclub has been saved from closure!
In August, the London institution had the axe looming over its head as developers pushed plans to build a 41-story apartment block directly across the road from the venue – noise complaints from which likely would have ended the club’s reign.
Yesterday morning, the proposal was rejected.
It seems we have the likes of Armin van Buuren, Laidback Luke and Judge Jules to thank for the MOS club’s rescue. The DJs were some of 25,000 people who signed a petition to deny the application and save what many consider to be one of the best clubs in the world.
Things were looking grim for the club’s future when head developer Christopher Allen coldly stated "Nightclubs come and go". But the council planning committee clearly felt differently, voting five to nil against the proposal. Allen described himself as "bitterly disappointed", stating "what will remain is a 1960s obsolete eyesore and the area, which desperately needs regeneration, will continue to stagnate".
Obsolete? Stagnate? He must not attended any of the recent, very significant and enlivened, Funkagenda, Michael Woods or deadmau5 sets hosted by the nightlife icon...
