Trinity Centre have submitted an objection towards a new proposal which would see 12 new apartments built at 90 West Street in Old Market.

The venue-come-community centre have opposed the proposition which would see new apartments built within 200 yards of the recently refurbished building.

They believe that insufficient discussion was made with the community and businesses around the Old Market area, in particular the live music venue, and no discussion was made to ensure that the Agent of Change Principle was acknowledged.

The Agent of Change Principle in these circumstances states “that if a music venue is in place before the residential building, the residential building would be responsible for paying for soundproofing.”

Trinity Centre have invited patrons and members of the public to make their complaints to towards the intended proposal through Bristol Council’s application planning online website. You can visit that here.

The proposal that threatens Trinity Centre follows the announcements that Stokes Croft staples Blue Mountain and Lakota would both be closing, with both venues suspected to be redeveloped into accommodation and business space.
