Save The Common Place From Closure

1,268 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We, the undersigned, call upon Leeds City Council to overturn its decision to withdraw a Club Premises Certificate from Leeds Social Centre Ltd (aka \'The Common Place\'). We believe that the Council\'s actions are totally unwarranted. The Common Place is the only independent, self-financed community, cultural and political space in the city centre. As a private members club, it serves as a vital resource for hundreds of local residents as well as supporting voluntary and community activity, particularly around homelessness, housing, environmental, womens\' and asylum issues. By revoking the Common Place\'s Club Premises Certificate, the Council is removing the Common Place\'s ability to generate much-needed funding through licensed events, meaning almost certain closure. We believe this is exactly the kind of venture Leeds City Council should be supporting to increase active citizenship in the city. (Your address and email will not be displayed to the public)
