Over recent weeks the York Feminist Network have been encouraging opposition to the venue ‘Upstairs’ in York which is going for its first renewal.

The Feminist Network has set up an online petition for opponents to argue for a nil limit on cubs in the city centre. In theory, the local authority can disregard signatures and objections from those who are not local residents, and it is never clear what weight would be put on a petition vs a written objection. However, the fact that there is opposition suggests this renewal will have to be delegated to committee and a decision made which will displease some, whatever way it pans out.
