Outlines the ways in which government can promote live music: examines rehearsal rooms, venues and use planning issues. Recommendations include:

  • A DCMS funded web based database of venues
  • Greater co-operation with student unions to re-establish the student union network of live music promotion
  • Financial support for small venues
  • Recognition of the cultural and social value of music in planning considerations
  • Formation of a new ‘Planning Use Class’ (e.g: creative space) within which rehearsal and music spaces would reside
