Question

Under the Agent of Change principle being championed by musician Frank Turner and others, if a music venue is in place before a new residential development is approved, the residential building would be responsible for paying for any soundproofing deemed necessary. Likewise, if a new music venue opens in a residential area, the venue would be responsible for the cost. Will the Mayor support this campaign and back such a change in legislation?
