It might also be worth finding out how frequently they plan to change
the code, and what notice will be given of such changes. It would be
pretty crappy if the code were changed at no notice, and we had no means
of communicating the new code to people before they arrived.

I think this is a good idea.
Does anybody ever come to the space without a mobile phone, or with a
flat battery or no credit? Is there an alternative contact method (ask
the security guard, perhaps) that we could recommend?

Under the new rules visitors can still gain access through the guard, just as before when the gate has been locked.
What the letter says is that the guard will 'record the visitor', which I assume means you will have to sign in/out at the gate.
And yes, the list is public, all messages to the list are public, posting anything remotely confidential is not clever.
I agree, but from our perspective this is going to be a huge pain. One
of the reasons for choosing Cremer Business Centre (not that we were
left with a huge amount of choice at the time) was the liberal access
policy for getting to the unit itself.
With over 300 members I imagine this is something that will be very
difficult to keep secure, nevertheless I think our best (only?) option
will be to keep the access key on the members-only area of the website
and post a notice in front of the gate asking non-members to either sign
in with the security guard or phone up to the space and have someone
come down and let - it sounds like telling visitors the code is not
really an option.
Martin, do you know when this is being implemented from?
Tim, can you send me the code via private e-mail, and I will add it to
the members website for the time being?

In any case, this would not solve the problem of visitor access which is
overwhelmingly more signficant - we should have no problem distributing
an access code to members who want to access the space at night.
For now I have added a page  to our members-only area.
