As many of you will know, the vibrant area and culture of Digbeth is currently under threat.
As highlighted by The Stirrer and Digbeth is Good, Birmingham City Council is organising an open meeting to discuss the issue of licensed premises and noise in the area, enabling some of the concerns raised about The Rainbow and The Spotted Dog to be discussed in public.
There will be three presentations – from Environmental Health, Licensing, and the planning department. There will also be the chance to quiz Council officers about future policy. Although the night is mainly focused on publicans, it is open to anyone who cares about the area. Spotted Dog landlord John Tighe commented:
‘This looks like it could be an important meeting. We do not want to let the Council get away with ticking a box saying that they’ve consulted everyone about noise issues, by hosting a meeting that no-one attends.’
If you want to have your voice heard, if you care about the culture of Digbeth this is one meeting not to miss.
The meeting will held by Regulatory Services at the Council House, 6pm on Tuesday 24th November.
