Victory for Forum’s fight

Musicans Against Homelessness

Music lovers are celebrating after a Tunbridge Wells-led campaign won a battle to prevent the loss of live music venues.

From April planning authorities must consider noise impacts on new residents from existing music venues.

Jason Dormon said it was ‘fantastic news’.
