It turns out Antwerp Mansion never actually had a nightclub licence
On Saturday it was served a notice to close in one month
Manchester City Council have confirmed that Antwerp Mansion, closing in one month, never had a nightclub license.
Documents on the Manchester City Council's website seemed to reveal that the venue was changed from a "Conservative Club" to a nightclub without permission from the council.
MCC have now confirmed that that the venue was operating as a nightclub without the correct planning permissions in place.
They also were issued with an Enforcement Notice in May 2017 after a number of noise complaints from local residents.
Councillor Angeliki Stogia said: "This will be good news for local residents who have put up with significant noise, violence and other anti-social behaviour brought to their neighbourhood because of Antwerp Mansion.
"We want to encourage business in Manchester and we welcome multi-use and diverse venues in our neighbourhood, but there has to be a balance so it works in the community, not against it.
"It is important that anyone opening a venue does contact the Council immediately to get planning advice before they open."
It comes after Antwerp released a statement regarding the closure earlier this afternoon.
Despite appealing the decision, Antwerp Mansion will close permanently in one month.
