Keep Digbeth Vibrant is a new site set up, I believe, by a resident of the infamous Abacus building next to the Spotted Dog.
Digbeth is renowned in Birmingham, the Midlands region and throughout the world a diverse and vibrant area encompassing a unique mix of industry, entertainment and residential developments. Part of the massive ‘Eastside’ Development Area of Birmingham, Digbeth is undergoing continued and exciting change. This website aims to support the continuing developments in Digbeth and take an active role in allowing the voices of those who live, work and relax in Digbeth be heard.
The website is expected to develop significantly over time but to start off they’ve launched a petition.
Also of interest is this thread on Skyscraper City, a forum populated by developers by the looks of things which gives another perspective. Forums are noisy places though, aren’t they?
And The Stirrer has a brief interview with Spotted Dog landlord John Tighe on his appeal against the Noise Abatement Order.
