Park use application - Bramhall Park - Family Theatre Show - 25th - 30th August 2020 pdf icon PDF 198 KB

To consider a report of the Corporate Director for Place Management & Regeneration.

 

The report details an application received from the organisation ‘Watershed’ that wishes to hold an open air family theatre show in Bramhall Park on the Terraces /Courtyard at Bramhall park from 25th August until 30th August, They would like to have two shows per day both lasting 75 minutes each. First show 11.30-12.45 second show 14.30-15.45. Maximum ticket sales is expected to be 60 to ensure social distancing.

 

(NOTE: The Chair is of the opinion that this item, although not included on the agenda, should be considered as a matter of urgency in accordance with Section 100B(4)(b) of the Local Government Act 1972 in order to allow the area committee to determine the application sufficiently in advance of the proposed date of the event in the interests of fairness to the applicant and interested parties).

 

The Neighbourhoods Team would usually recommend that an event of this nature be approved subject to all the relevant documentation, risk assessments and licences being obtained and submitted at least one week prior to the event taking place, however following discussions and the measures that would need to be implemented to deliver the event to meet COVID 19 guidance it is felt that this would be too challenging and therefore The Neighbourhoods Team cannot recommend at this time that the event be approved’. 

 

The Area Committee is therefore recommended to refuse the application.
