It beats me why this was allowed to become a bar in the first place; the over-proliferation of late night bars/ clubs in this neck of the woods has harmed the special character of the London Road/ Bedford Place area. I'm not sure if turning all redundant commercial space over to student accommodation is likely to help things, though.

Surely what this area needs is a supplementary policy that regulates licensing, residential design, commercial activity, highways, parking, waste collection etc. - a mini version of the city centre master plan.

People need to lighten up. If Southampton is to remain competitive as an attractive city to go to for university having a good night life is a must. The comments about bars and nightclubs harming the special character of the area are ridiculous along with the moans about student accommodation. The fact is that of the city's population of around 240,000 there are 40,000 students attending the 2 universities. They have to live somewhere. Southampton is very economically dependant on these students through the direct employment they bring to the city through the universities and the money they spend. STOP COMPLAINING.
