Implement the Live Music Taskforce recommendations
Petition Background (Preamble):
Way back in 2003 the Live Music Taskforce went to a lot of effort to put together a set of recommendations based around the concept of 'the agent of change.' The idea is that if the venue was there first then it is the developer's job to take sound proofing measures, if the residents were there first and a venue decides to have live music or if a new venue springs up it is the venues responsibility. Makes sense.
This report also outlines ways in which venues and residential buildings can minimise sound coming in and going out. The report was accepted by Mary Delahunty, the minister for Arts at the time, and a commitment made by the State Government to implement these recommendations. This was promptly forgotten about as soon as Mary Delahunty left.
Sign this online petition to help put pressure where it is needed to resurrect these recommendations and preserve the unique live music scene in Fitzroy and The City of Melbourne in general!
Implementing these recommendations will go part of the way to protect the unique and valuable live music scene in Melbourne.
