Anybody would think there was no where on that street for people to dance to a system all night.

Far more people were kept awake than were there, that was no house party sound system gwarnin.

Plus the Jungle DJ should be shot, I think all he had was a copy of "Jungle is massive volume 1" as the tune selection was lame. Original nuttah into Incredible into rinsed out after rinsed out jungle tune for hours.

Police turned up, but decided it wasn't worth risking another riot by trying to break it up, so just pissed off and let it be.

This is what I hate most of all. Its so popular to blame the police when trouble kicks off that my neighbourhood doesn't get policed at all unless someone's life is directly at risk. I'm all for organising a street party but it just isn't cricket to close a road without prior notice so you can have a stupid drug party with shit music and complete lack of respect for anyone who isn't a ketamised fucking cunt. I mean seriously what is the world coming to.

So the crusties now officially run Cheltenham Rd? Damn

It would appear that way based on this weekend gone. Don't get me wrong they're peaceful and all and I suppose they could honestly claim "we aren't hurting anybody" (except the poor bloke who got his bonnet danced on) but in my day this sort of shindig happened down the woods where it didn't stop a main traffic artery or involve speaker stacks less than 10m from someone's bedroom window.

Yeah free parties aint really my scene, but have NO problem with them in woods/warehouses (away from people's houses basically)... this sounds like a pisstake though

Well the kids have got it in their head they have to reclaim the streets or some mental bullshit. I think its good that we live in a world of changing power balances where the will of a group of people can threaten and ultimately topple an establishment but its a hideous abuse of power to use that leverage for something as poxy as a disruptive party in the middle of a busy street. Can't they go do something worthwhile with their youthful energy instead of being destined to be yet another passionate generation that eventually grows up and gets jobs as lawyers defending the status quo they used to rail against? Or maybe I'm reading too much politics into this and the reality is these guys are just morons with fuck all better to do.

Probably the latter... obviously there's exceptions, but going back to the riots (again - sorry!!) I personally reckon the vast majority of those involved were just up for a madness. Certainly the 14 year old kiddies didn't have some anti-capitalist agenda, they just wanted to bottle police

Er, why is it ok for people to take over the streets with loud soundsystems...  but long serving establishments a stone throw away (such as the Croft) constantly get beef for noise from the council??


And as for property owners turning Stokes Croft into Shoreditch??  Doh! Doh! Doh! Doh! I think the opening of Hamilton House* has been the main catalyst in this tbh

The buildings were empty and very very derelict for 20 years. The owner was given an Intention of CPO notice by the council about 8 years ago but they didn't respond.
The council broke into the building and did 56 thousand worth of remedial work to stop the building from falling down.
The owner, a private company registered in Hong Kong and the Isle of Man, has been unreachable throughout.

When the Freeshop/Emporium crew took the building over the place was full of pigeon shit and general filth. I know because I moved 3 fucking tons of it on my own. The place was scrubbed, repaired and make useful again.
There have been dozens of exhibitions in Emporium and hundreds of people have made use of the Freeshop.

When the court granted the owner possession they made it very clear that they weren't happy about it and that the owner didn't really deserve it back.  Since then the Freeshop crew have offered to buy the building but that has been refused.

So yeah, a squat.

Yeah I expected as much and everyone (imo) is entitled to a big loud one when they're leaving a shared place. Most don't invade the entire street and stop traffic though. There's meant to be some reasonable cut-off where it gets shut down.

re: the shops. That is indeed a tale of woe. Obviously not being able to tell they were squatted from looking at them indicates they were well looked after. Did the court apply any conditions on the owner with respect to development and upkeep after posession is returned? Have they made public any plans or are there offers under discussion that anyone knows about? Seems weird to finally get in touch with the owners and then stop persuing the CPO.  Undecided

Nope. It's being auctioned off. The building actually has a negative value so an auction's a pretty fucking stupid idea.

I would bet on them fetching a fairly high price from a speculating developer.... All the flats in the Audi build have gone (although the shops are still vacant). The building I live in was a squat until this year and all the flats there have been let. There's definitely money in property in the area and over a longer timescale like 10 years I really do doubt it'd have a negative value particularly as a residential development.... If it goes cheap I'll eat my hat, and I love this hat.

Indeed it is a perfect time. The point I was trying to make is that the owners will not get as much at auction as the squatter  crew were offering and they should have accepted that figure.
I forgot to say that it's a Grade 2 listed building which obviously affects what can be done with the place in terms of redevelopment.

There are some squatting to ownership success stories, Kebele in Easton immediately springs to mind. The bank approached the squatters and asked if they would like to buy it, they said yes, formed a housing co-operative and the mortgage is now paid off.

Typo - what's the thinking behind squatters buying property then? If you wanted to own property and are in a position to do so I would have thought it would be easier to just find something to buy in the first place?

I obviously can't speak for every case but the way it generally goes is:
A bunch of people squat a place with no intention of buying at all. If the building lasts for a half decent amount of time various projects tend to start which aren't necessarily viable in paid for property. If the projects are working well when the owner applies for possession then a lot of squats will be reluctant to give up all their hard work (and they do work hard). Many people just open another building and relocate there, some try and come up with a more stable, long term solution. One of these is buying the building.
 Two Thumbs

Just to elaborate on Freeshop/Emporium for a minute; they have done some really good things there and without question their projects are working really well.
Freeshop gives away clothes, food, books etc to anyone who needs them. They open once a week on a Thursday and is very well attended. It's a valuable service to loads of people in the area.
Emporium has provided a free exhibition space to dozens of artists, many of which had not exhibited before. (Beavis, Gussett and I had a photography and film show there in its early days, it was the buildings second exhibition.)
Again, a really valuable resource for new artists which will be badly missed.

I see. It amazes me that the government is planning on making squatting illegal when there are so many empty properties around. Surely it should be looking at ways to make it easier for people to take possession and do something positive with the space, particularly if they could end up buying it legally? In fact, isn't that the essence of the Big Fucking Society?

Frankly, there is nothing amazing about a Tory government protecting capitalist ventures over the individual. It's what they do.

They protect and encourage individual enterprise within the available framework.

By far the biggest worry is the abolition of legal aid.

I'm not trying to be funny right but if these projects had found their empty, delapidated, worthless buildings and went to the landlords and said "give us dirt cheap rent and we'll fix the place, provide security for it and even sign a waiver of some of your responsibilities as landlord" then many a businessman would see that as a way to make some small income from his otherwise unproductive asset, no? And, assuming that such a landlord did agree to such a deal would it not have been better for the project all along? Protecting its' legitimacy and even opening it up to charitable status? And, stay with me here, if the landlord had agreed to such terms then he would, wouldn't he, have exactly the same right to evict tenants as he does to evict squatters in circumstances such as these? A simple court order and a demonstration that the request for eviction is lawful? And so, in summation, do you really think a squatting project has any more right to resist eviction than a paying tenant?

I just spoke to one of the Freeshop chaps who has clarified the purchase attempt.
Basically they made a very good offer to the owners solicitors and not only have they not responded but they appear to have pushed the baliffs to hurry the eviction attempt along.
I'll not say what figure they offered but it is fair and in the same ballpark as what The Junction was bought for.
The fact that the solicitors will not communicate with them is pretty tedious.

And, assuming that such a landlord did agree to such a deal would it not have been better for the project all along? Protecting its' legitimacy and even opening it up to charitable status?
I've personally tried to negotiate with the owner of a big building in The Burg (which has been empty for 8 years) to use for community projects and he wouldn't have any of it. He wanted a fucking huge amount of money for the place which was just not realistic.
We had 4 meetings over the course of a year and at each one he refused to budge on cost. The proposal I gave would have generated 70 grand over 5 years for him. He wanted around triple that.
I politely turned it down, we shook hands and parted ways.

Some months later a bunch of squatters moved in and I (genuinely) just happened to be walking by when the owner arrived. Again I tried to negotiate with him and again he would not shift at all.
He evicted the squatters (who were a really nice bunch of people) and the building is back to its vacant state.
 Doh!

The basic fact is that owners think their property is worth a certain amount and will rarely take less than market value even if, as in this case, the amount being offered is hardly small change.

I've also been speaking to other property owners about taking on their empties with similar and to some extent more frustrating results.

I'm not on about buying it, just renting it. Even if you have to sign a 2 week notice clause so he can respond if a better offer comes along... I just can't understand why someone who's good enough with money to buy property  that large would turn down easy money in exchange for precisely no effort or cost.  Undecided

Hello. Indeed we did and a really good show it was too. Some types of shows benefit hugely from having just that sort of venue to be shown in and that one worked perfectly. Even if there wasn't a loo and I had to cheekily use The Junction's and sneak back out again.

I'm not on about buying it, just renting it. Even if you have to sign a 2 week notice clause so he can respond if a better offer comes along... I just can't understand why someone who's good enough with money to buy property  that large would turn down easy money in exchange for precisely no effort or cost.  Undecided

That is a difficult one to answer but there will always be people who simply aren't willing to negotiate with people who aren't wearing suits. Remember that there are plenty of success stories too, like what the Altspace Lifestyle collective did with the Audi garage / that church in Clifton I've forgotten the name of / Bridewell island etc.

The Freeshop and Emporium have been given notice of eviction for this Wednesday.
Get yer cameras ready for round 3.

What was they squats or does the landlord just want them out or what?
The buildings were empty and very very derelict for 20 years. The owner was given an Intention of CPO notice by the council about 8 years ago but they didn't respond.


This is my point entirely. Investors holding on to buildings waiting for the area to improve so they can profit, while doing fuck all to contribute to that improvement. Like what happened when they developed shoreditch. hence the comment. Not my fault if you know nothing about urban development. (not directed at you T)

I can imagine.
People who play bongos or djembes really need to practise somewhere soundproof before they inflict their noise on the public.

Well you'll have to elaborate and articulate a little better Steve. I imagine that, like myself, few people on here share your knowledge on urban development across the UK and beyond, so being vague may result in what you're trying to saying being completely misunderstood.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/9303023/Student-rioter-allowed-to-complete-his-degree.html

Quote
Patrick Besiris, 21, was among 200 rioters who attacked police during a violent protest against a new supermarket in Bristol on the day of the Royal Wedding last year.
But despite being charged with violent disorder, he was allowed to complete his politics degree at the University of the West of England (UWE) and has since graduated with a First Class BA Honours.

I don't know who I dislike more. This Peter Berisis prick or UWE for allowing him to continue. Absolutely disgraceful they allowed a violent criminal to continue.
