Local Traffic Committee Meeting 6.2
Report No. 6.2 Festival of the Stone 2022
File No: I2022/473
Development application (DA) 10.2022.64.1 is currently being assessed and seeks concurrent approval to hold a one-day festival on Saturday 4th of June 2022 at the Stone and Wood micro-brewery site in the Byron Arts and Industrial Estate. The patron aspects of the function will open at 15:00 and finish at 22:00. The capacity of the function will be 2000 patrons. Food and entertainment will be provided along with alcoholic beverages in accordance with liquor licencing requirements. The development application proposes temporary closure of Centennial Avenue under traffic control as well as temporary signage in the public road reserve along Centennial Avenue and Ewingsdale Road.
The function proponent will obtain a contract booking to use the Cavanbah Centre for the purpose of car parking for the function.
The submitted S.E.E states All parking and vehicular drop-off including bus, taxi, Uber & other mode of transportation to from the function will utilise Cavanbah Centre. The car parking area in Cavanbah Centre will be maintained during the function and returned to pre-festival conditions. Drop-off & Pick-up of elderly and people with disability will be undertaken at the northern access of the site and assisted with function personnel; and No drop-off & pick-up permitted along Centennial Circuit other than elderly and people with disability.
The Event Management Plan submitted contradicts the S.E.E as mentioned above stating All vehicle drop off and pickup will be at the Cavanbah Centre, except Buses, Taxis & Ubers, the S.E.E needs to be amended to reflect this, as this was the case at the 2021 event.
Prior to the event a 11 seat Shuttle service has been proposed from the Cavanbah Center to the Brewery, then from the Brewery to Byron Bus station and return. After the event a 60 seater bus or 2 mini coaches is proposed a return trip to the Cavanbah Center then Byron Bus Station at a $5 charge on the day. Otherwise pedestrians can walk 6 min. from the Cavanbah Centre to the Brewery and back.
A traffic guidance scheme (TGS) similar to the approved 2021 event has been re-submitted for this year’s event. Refer attachment. The TGS proposes temporary closure of Centennial Circuit between Brigantine Street and Tasman Way during the event. Access to the road closure is intended to be provided to shuttle buses, uber’s and taxi’s under traffic control. Event marshals will be provided to assist with managing pedestrians and vehicle drop-offs at the site frontage. Its noted last years event under this traffic control scheme went smoothly with no traffic queuing back onto Ewingsdale Road or choking the industrial back streets.
1. That Council endorse the Festival of the Stone to be held on Saturday 4 June 2022, in accordance with the Local Traffic Committee recommendations.
