MEDIACITYUK NOISY NEIGHBOURS

HOW LOUD WILL MEDIACITYUK GET?

Residents from Salford Quays and the swanky apartments at MediaCityUK will soon find out how loud it's going to get outside their windows.

Peel Media, owner of MediaCityUK, is holding a consultation with residents just two days before applications for outdoor entertainment and alcohol sales licenses are due to be submitted to Salford Council.

Last week, Peel ran some sound tests at the site and by all accounts it was rather loud.

Full story here…


Peel Media, owners of MediaCityUK, is due to submit applications around December 3rd for entertainment and alcohol sales licenses at indoor and outdoor sites within the `new city'.

A letter to Salford Quays residents inviting them to a consultation states that the company is considering ideas including "concerts, outdoor tv broadcast events, sports events and markets…As well as amplified music from concert events, noise from other sources such as audience members, site build and de-rig and generators will be considered when planning events".

Last week, a series of acoustic tests were carried out across MediaCityUK by consultants Vanguardia, and residents confirm that it was LOUD.

"We believe that bringing additional visitors to MediaCityUK for public events will benefit the wider area as well as increase the scope of activities for you, the local residents" adds the Peel Media letter.

Now, the Salford Quays campaign group Sleepless In Salford is urging all residents to attend the consultation meeting this Wednesday 1st December 6:30pm at The Pie Factory (If you want to attend, email: tony.chebrika@mediacityuk.co.uk or telephone 0161 660 3600).

If the noise from MediaCityUK isn't enough to keep residents sleepless, news also comes in of the proposed dance venue at Victoria Warehouse next door in Trafford. It seems that after gaining a license from Trafford Council in September, the club's owners Adam Geoffrey Management are re-applying to extend the opening hours at weekend from 2am to 4am.

Objections to the extension of the club's hours can be submitted by Thursday 2nd December, stating Application Number 023954 and should be sent to Licensing Department, Trafford Council, Trafford Town Hall, Talbot Road, Stretford, M32 0YJ. According to the Sleepless In Salford group, objections should be placed under the headings of The Prevention of Crime and Disorder; The Prevention of Public Nuisance; Public Safety; The Protection of Children from Harm.

They certainly ain't going to be re-making Sleepy Hollow at MediaCityUK!

Can i make a suggestion on the test music vanguardia might want to use for their test? "House Arrest" from Bryan Adams CD "Waking up the Neighbours" :) Opening lines "Oh we're gonna have a party, gonna make some noise..Yeah, we're inviting all the girls inviting all the boys..."

See Steve's comment below. Firstly the article isn't campaigning, it's pure info. Secondly, everyone's entitled to a quiet life. And thirdly, we've been specifically asked by the community of Ordsall Estate, who aren't `yuppies', to cover the work of Sleepless In Salford as it affects them.
