Building Permit

  • We can't just do anything we want in a public building. Doesn't work.
  • If there's alcohol, there has to be an RSA! insurance, supervision - OTHERWISE WE'RE 'HOSED'.
  • Ultimately the membership is in charge and events should be acceptable/accessible to the membership.

  • Impossible to police. Too much of an administrative burden.
  • Potential Audio Vault Sun-downer - wanted one in a few weeks but building permit etc has put it on hold.
  • Cleanup Event - after the Beaufort st festival in 2 weeks - enough time to put the call out on core list 'can we chuck this, this etc'
