Liverpool’s independent nightclub Meraki has announced the launch of part two of the ‘Save Meraki’ campaign.
In February, underground dance music venue Meraki asked clubgoers and the community for their help in saving the venue after the venue received details of a neighbouring warehouse that could go under development to turn it into a block of flats.
Meraki is arguing that Liverpool City Council look into the Agent of Change policy that is committed to safeguarding music venues and places of significant cultural value hoping that the council chooses to enforce this policy.
The club believe that the council's decision on this application is likely to indicative the future of music venues and the wider cultural landscape of Liverpool.

With this previous campaign being a huge success, Meraki is now asking supporters to provide feedback directly through Liverpool City Council’s Planning Portal.
In a statement on Instagram Meraki said: “We’re asking you to make a formal representation against this development through the council’s planning portal.”
The club adds: It’s a really simple process and will take you less than 5 minutes to complete but could make a difference that will last years to come. We know your time is valuable but we really need as many people as possible to make a representation. Your time here will be truly valuable and will make a difference to the future of meraki, and Liverpool’s cultural output going forward.”

Meraki has upcoming shows with KiNK on September 30 and DJ Assault on October 8.
