Is anyone else living within sight / sound of Pulse having an issue with the noise? The all-nighters really are a bit of a pain. There were still people outside at 6am this morning, screaming, shouting and being generally very noisy. I'm not entirely sure why such late licences were ever approved by Southwark Council in the first place.

Oh god, pour you. Where is this place?. Keep at the council and get your MP involved. I experienced something similar and know what itís like. Nightmare. I donít know why Southwark council allow these places in residential areas. Itís not on.

I believe it is about to be closed down - and turned into luxury apartments. Exactly what this part of London needs...

Pulse is part of the COMMUNITY! When you bought your 'luxury' flat it was there! If you are unhappy then move, even with Brexit you should make a profit that is more than the annual salaries for 10 years of a person who is working in the area. Yes those invisible people who make your coffees, clean your toilets and clean up your puke on a night out drinking cocktails! The 'investors' in the development are from Malaysia and Singapore. Countries where you would be imprisoned for drinking cocktails, let alone snogging a man! They will 'invest' their illicit millions in 'luxury flats' that like ALL THE OTHERS will sit empty. Banks in the sky, to launder money! Happy Days welcome to the new improved Southwark. If you actually care a Frock for your neighbourhood petition your MP.

Excuse me ... not everyone who lives in the vicinity of Pulse lives in a luxury flat, and there were plenty of local residents before Pulse opened, which was not that long ago in the grand scheme of things.

Reconciling late night venues and residents is never going to be easy, but your post is hardly helpful.

....with the greatest of pleasure, you are excused. Back to the matter at hand of locals and community. Malaysian and Singapore investors need somewhere to realise profits on their billions invested. Just look at the 'success' of all the other major developments across London! Empty multimillion pound 'homes' for people living anywhere but in London. Corruption at Government level millions, changing hands via offshore investment funds! 'Affordable Housing' forcing families into poverty, putting how many people onto the streets?Reality is social cleansing. The facts speak for themselves!
Let a few 'queers' dance the night away! Who is entitled? Who has privilege?
BTW I am a 'queer' property developer, I know the score! Do you?

There are hardly any clubs in Southwark. I too am sick of entertainment venues closing down to make way for luxury unaffordable flats sold to foreign investors. The club has been there for more than 10 years. I bet the people who are complaining bought the flats more recently than the club opened. People want to go out in London and enjoy themselves, if you donít like living in central London with a bit of noise you have the option to move somewhere else.

Hear Hear!

Why move to such a central area? There are so many sleepy suburbs. London Bridge is not the place if you want silence

I agree with the sentiment. However, while it is lovely to have the flexibility to rent or buy where you like, some people have not had this luxury. They are essentially, where they have been put.

I shouldn't need to justify myself, but I've actually lived in this area of Southwark for over 40 years so, yes, I have lived here since way before any of the current venues were opened. I also live in social housing and don't own a property, luxury or otherwise.

My original post was intended to find out if anyone else was being bothered and to question why a 6am licence is strictly necessary. My concerns are valid and I'm entitled to raise them, so I find it hard to understand why my views aren't acceptable to some posters.

Incidentally, I doubt a set of railway arches is going to be turned into residential property any time soon. The surrounding buildings are being demolished, but the arches appear not to be included in the new development. (I could be wrong about that point though).
