Wonderboy supports Toast

By Jazz - 20 June 2005 8

Our Sources generally comes across all sorts of interesting news items and this one is no exception. In it, Wonderboy Smyth gives the goverment a serve for not being more supportive of small businesses like Toast, currently the subject of an Office of Fair Trading enquiry into a noise complaint.

Normally you’d expect this investigation to be done by the Environmental Protection Authority, but when has Stanhope ever had to follow his own regulations.

What’s Your opinion?

Sadly it would seem another live venue is going to be closed down due to government guidelines and regulations and red tape.

I think Stanhope and Corbell should get together and form a community working group to report to a steering committee to input its findings into the consultation sought for a plan to deliver strategies that will deliver definite outcomes that will be agreeable to the stakeholders at large.

That should ensure the place stays open for at least another four or five years…

Apparently the noise standard Brian’s being held to is one which the Canberra Times fountain on City Walk fails.

Big problem for the mighty plans of mixed use living in Civic West.

There was a story about Toast in today’s CT but I don’t really remember what it said (that was all the way this morning ago). Something about the owner of Toast who’s name I also can’t recall complaining about the unfairness of it all. I do remember that he said the ETA people had only measured the noise at his club for 10 minutes on three separate occasions, but i couldn’t figure out whether this was a good or bad thing.
Maybe someone else has a better memory than me.

Yeah,

but that was never going happen was it…

To have good government you need to have good opposition. Sadly we don’t…..

has anyone ever paused to think about how readily interchangeable ‘Stanhope’ and ‘Smyth’ would have been in this article if the last election had come out differently.
