Earthcore 2017 (June Council meeting)

A request for consent to host the 2017 Earthcore festival was presented to the June Council Meeting for consideration. The request for written consent was made outside the timelines of the permit, did not include all the plans required and was for dates that weren’t covered in the original permit. On advice, this means that the request falls outside of the consent provisions of the permit and Council has no authority to grant it. Even if Council did have authority to grant the request, it would be refused due to significant concerns about patron safety, illegal drug use, traffic management, security and noise that have not been addressed.
