Will Derby Receive European Funding?

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

The Derby city council has made an interesting request. They’ve applied for European funding in order to soundproof the Friar Gate Studios building. They opened the office building about 4 years ago in order to acomodate up and coming businesses while developing the area, but they have a problem. Neighbors are complaining about noise.

To soundproof the entire building would cost around 750,000 pounds – money Derby doesn’t have. They’re stuck in a difficult situation. No new tenants will move in until problems are corrected, and neigbors won’t stop complaining.

We can’t wait to see if their request for funding pans out.
