I was never a fan of the 414 but that isn't the point.
There seems to be an alarming number of venues right across that are shutting down and being redeveloped. It isn't just music venues, it is also happening to minor art galleries and museums.
Slowly the old soul of our capital is being eroded. Like it or not the 414 has been an important part of night time culture in Brixton.

There's also a substantial number of new venues opening every week with markedly better quality.

Just because people are sentimental about a place closing down for property development doesn't make it the end of the world.

On the contrary, the whole point is the place probably needed redeveloping anyway.

Do you know who owns the freehold?

Might it be worth appealing to them directly??



Yep, I was right. Market Row are the freeholders, although it's mortgaged:

Title Number : SGL472988
Address of Property : 414-416 Coldharbour Lane, London (SW9 8LF)
Price Stated : Not Available
Registered Owner(s) : MARKET ROW LIMITED (Co. Regn. No. 2229018) of 24 Bruton Place, London W1J 6NE.
Lender(s) : Abbey National Treasury Services Plc

And they submitted the planning application.

So that's goodbye 414 then.

No chance fighting that.

Public pressure seems to be the best option, although I presume Market Row would put up the rent to compensate for their failed development plans.

Changed thread title and made sticky.

It would be good if Tony & Louise gave us some direction on the best way to campaign...

Petitions are all well and good but you need a hell of a lot of names to make an impact:

I think comments on the Lambeth planning application will have a more direct effect, but just saying "I loved The 414" isn't going to help to sway their decision.

I wonder if there are any high-profile fans?

Cool, I presumed it would be an uphill struggle if the freeholder and council wanted the change.

How interested will the authority be in comments from people who don't live in the area?



Logic would suggest you want people coming from out of the area to spend their money in yours.
A mix of both would be ideal, local support and otherwise.

I think it is fair to say that everyone on the Internet is annoying.
