Seems that the disgust about a few 'smelly artists' has completely masked the loss of Compass Buses, North St Garage etc.

I'll tell you a little story
Firstly, Santon took the rent and didn't have pay the council tax, while they developed the site. GREAT news.. happy days etc, because in fact, if they, or any other developer had to cover the cost of having a completely empty site, they wouldn't have touched the place with a fracking barge pole, and even if they had, it more than likely wouldn't have sped up the planning process anyway..
So you and everyone else would have still been looking at those ugly bunch of decaying foundry sheds over the last 8 years anyways..
I understand the fact that the pepper corn rents and leaking roofs was a bit of a piss take and some folks made money subletting and getting away with not paying council tax under the guise of being an artistic community or that kinda rubbish
this might rub some folks up the wrong way, yet even then people did get to use the facilities for birthday parties, wakes and other celebrations, even artist studio's??
along with a lot of genuine business and fully function charities trading on the estate and this should be respected.
As the genuine could do with new venues..
Yes its time has come: I see an amazing phoenix skatepark to replace the worn out public park on
Brooks Close BN7 2FZ,

"yet even then people did get to use the facilities for birthday parties". 200 people were only an hour or so away from being trapped in a fire there at a birthday party caused by a faulty woodburner flue. Don't seem to have heard anything about health and safety prosecutions on that one.

Yes thAt fire
I'd just finished a yoga workshop on the bank of the river Ouse that day.. I have friends that where in the building when it when up..
If that had happened when the party was in full swing there WOULD have been many deaths!
Thankfully not, in this case, and it's time to bulldoze the rest ASAP

Another thought though
Santons letting agent did change the lease on Arthole to ten people in the building at any one time, so no more parties gigs events etc, which Christian failed to tell me when I got involed clearing space of rubbish etc.
Yet Zu still carried on having raves?! The cult of personalities I'm guessing
Who you know
If people like you or not
Funny little soap opera cums to its closing chapter

That's a serious allegation, especially considering the fire. How come the authorities aren't doing anything about it?

Had the building been subject to fire/safety checks as a public venue? if so, according to what I have heard the wood burner may well have failed any such check. I agree , there could have been a disaster had people been in there at the time. The issue really does seem unresolved with no lessons learned for the future.
