Submission to the City of Sydney on Live Music Matters: Live Music And Performance Action Plan
Prepared by Alex Masso
Music Australia responded to the City of Sydney’s Live Music Matters action plan in January 2014. Music Australia’s submission welcomes the plan, and says “The report is a comprehensive and well researched document setting out the potential for local government actions to support live music, as well as state and federal government, music sector and venue-based actions. It deals with specific issues for Sydney and presents a wide range of strategies to support musical life in the city.”
This submission addresses a number of the issues and recommendations including development controls and noise, Building Code of Australia, local content, parking, community facilities, accessibility, and funding for capital costs.
