Is there hope for The Standard?

People are still questioning the logic of allowing the owners of The Standard to change its use from a music venue to a supermarket, especially at the same time that a council-led Action Plan is being developed to encourage people to visit, live and work in the same area and at a time when the live music scene is thriving, with people in London crying out for new venues to both play at and to visit.

People travel for miles to go to music venues. The right kind of venue can totally transform the businesses of the surrounding area. I doubt the same can be said for a supermarket. Surely our music venues should have some kind of protection?

The BAG has recently reported there might be some hope still for The Standard.
