Saw an article in the Chronicle this morning whilst eating my donut toast (cinnamon toast) at the cafe next to cafe cactus (i forget the name) this morning… and to my horror, there are going to be tougher restrictions imposed on all events at EPIC in the near future..
Apparently there is going to be more development around EPIC, which will introduce some tougher noise restrictions. Some Watson residents have already screamed their distaste for the annual Summernats event.
Chic Henry said that they are going to have to establish complaint contact lines for the event, plus the introduction of the noise restrictions.
My prediction is the event will resemble floriade in about half a decade at the rate things are going…
3 days of the year, a national capital tradition. a past time for motor enthusiasts alike. and still people want the event canned. I am glad they did that investigation of the event to determine the whinging/money ratio. and figured money ruled over the minority of whingers.
But in the broader spectrum… How is this going to affect events such as The Canberra Show and all the rest?
No doubt the Canberra show has just as much noise polution (maybe not as much smoke polution) but either way, I think this will prove disasterous in the longrun.. Thoughts?
