Night and Day Statement
The Noise Abatement Notice issued by Manchester City Council in response to a single resident's complaint remains live. We have lodged an Appeal and a preliminary hearing has been set for early March.
We would like to stress that we never offered any money to the complainant. We met on two occasions. The complainant put in writing that he would drop his complaint if we paid him a considerable amount of money, which we refused to do.
Since this refusal every time we have had a live show the complainant has consistently complained about noise. The position now is that the Council are threatening to prosecute us and/or review our licence, even before we have had the opportunity of discussing our case in Court.
We would like to stress that in 22 years we have never had a complaint from the building where the complainant lives. There are people from the same set of flats who have publicly stated that we are not a nuisance to them. Nothing has changed in the last 22 years and music levels have certainly not been turned up.
We still feel the Notice is extremely unfair as the argument of us being a nuisance is so disproportionate. One complainant has generated a situation which could have extremely serious consequences and we are genuinely concerned about our future. On the other hand, almost 70,000 people support us.
We simply want to continue what we have always done - that is provide a platform for both local and international artists to perform to the appreciative Mancunian public and its visitors.
We are over-whelmed with the support we have had and would love that to continue. If you want to carry on helping us the petition is still active (see link) and actions such as writing to local MP's/Councillors are truly appreciated.
We would also like to stress that we do not want to see any abuse being directed at anyone involved. This is not an attack on the complainant but an explanation of the precarious situation the complaints have put us in.
