We are currently facing a bleak situation at Xchange in Bournemouth.
Recently a new resident moved into the Triangle and has since continuously made noise complaints to Bournemouth Council. 
Since being made aware of the problem we have made huge efforts to ensure noise is at acceptable levels. We have routinely taken decibel readings, have moved sound equipment to reduce noise and also now restrict the number of people in the smoking area. In addition to security we have someone ensuring customers noise is kept at low levels. Customers who are too noisy outside are not allowed re-entry and told to leave the area. Unfortunately our new measures and our efforts to accommodate for this new town centre living resident are not good enough and the situation has been taken further. With a hearing looming we urge you to please sign this petition to show your support.
The Xchange has been a pillar of the LGBTQ+ community for over 28 years providing people with a safe environment where they are free to be themselves. The Xchange is one of the only LGBTQ+ venues left in Bournemouth and the only late night venue. We fequently raise money for charities and support the local community as well as providing free nightly entertainment.

It is so important that you show your support and help save this venue by signing this petition. Community venues such as the Xchange are so important to the LGBTQ+ community we can’t lose them!
