Well as predicted Brent Planning were won over by the Developers slick presentation and accepted that the underground “cave” will provide a variable alternative to the current music venue. We know the game here, just as with the Corrib Rest, the developers produce a plan for a pub/music venue which is, to any sane person, not going to provide a space / facility for a viable business. But time and time again these “Trojan Horse” applications get past Brent planning! We know that after a few months the developers will apply to Brent Planning for “change of use” for the “Cave” on grounds that, surprise surprise, it’s proposed use as a music venue is non-viable, and Brent will roll over and grant it. Mention must be made of the Chair of the Planning committee Cllr Denslow’s comment that “Kilburn has enough pubs” so Kilburn won’t miss the Good Ship. So as the curtains are drawn on the last music venue in Kilburn, we invite Cllr James Denslow to turn off the lights.
