Echo Letters: Bluesfest changes

Thank you for the news
about the Blues Festival
moving to Tyagarah. I hope
that before the Festival managers
purchase the land,
they lodge a Development
Application (DA) for the
activity they intend to run
there. That will allow me to
lodge my objections before
they pay a market price
based on their own assessment
of the property’s
future. At this stage Council
may have indicated a
green light but public support
has not been tested. We
may not want Tyagarah to
be the new sacrifi cial lamb.

I will object to the events
as they are now run but on
the new site because (i)
15,000 people is too many
to introduce to the Shire at
any one time, especially over
Easter but at any time; (ii)
the Festival serves nonlocals
with non-local music
and can easily be held (as
Mr Noble says, in The Echo
two weeks ago) in Ballina or
Tweed Shires, or at Woodford.
That is, unless the Festival
is marketed on the basis
of the Byron name-tag. In
that case the moves to other
Shires are just empty

To avoid disappointment,
lodge a DA before you buy.

Duncan Dey,
