Dear Belfast City Council,

I am writing to request information regarding independent music venues in the region covered by Belfast City Council, concentrating primarily on grassroots venues.

My questions are as follows:

1- How many independent music venues currently operate within the region of your council?

2- How many venues have closed or been forced to shut in the past five tax years?

3- How many music venues less would you estimate are operating in the region of your council compared to ten years ago?

4- What are the most common reasons for music venue closures within the region of your council? Noise complaints? Housing developments? Refusal to extend alcohol licenses? Lack of business? etc...

I look forward to hearing to response.

Yours faithfully,

Aidan Kerr
