Ministry of Sound 'horrified' by developer

Ministry of Sound has expressed its opposition to plans to construct a residential building opposite the nightclub.

Property developer Oakmayne wants to develop high-end flats on the site of the old Eileen House, which Ministry of Sound claims could threaten the superclub's entertainment licence.

Ministry of Sound chief executive Lohan Presencer said: "When Oakmayne told us that 'nightclubs come and go', we were horrified. Ministry of Sound is not just any nightclub; it's the most famous nightclub in the world and the heart of a global entertainment business.

"These developers have cut corners at every stage and counter to their claims, they do not have the best interests of the local community at heart. We must do everything in our power to save our club and our business."

Cllr Adele Morris, who represents the Cathedrals ward where the club is based, told Southwark News: "The Ministry of Sound's big fear is understandably that new people will move in and complain about the noise from the club. My view is they have been here for 20 years and we are very proud to have them in the area."

Ministry of Sound opened in SE1 in September 1991 and has since grown into a global brand with offices in London, New York, Berlin and Sydney.
