Fabric are reportedly at advanced stages of talks with Islington Town Hall aimed at agreeing licensing conditions that would allow the club to reopen.
A deal is said to be possible ahead of fabric’s appeal hearing, which is currently set for Monday 28th November, if lawyers for both parties can get a judge to rubber-stamp the licensing agreement, according to Islington Tribune.
There is no official word from either party on details of the reported deal. fabric co-owner Cameron Leslie reportedly revealed the existence of a “non-disclosure agreement”, but added, “I’m not at liberty to say whether [discussions] are being had or not.”
A spokesman for Islington council said, “We don’t have any other comment ahead of the appeal, beyond our statement from September.”
Earlier this month fabric submitted evidence to court ahead of its license appeal hearing. It included a 155-page Operational Policies and Procedures Manual, detailing the security, welfare and medical facilities to be provided at the club, together with the management and audit procedures to ensure that they are operated to the highest standard.
