Sign up so I can keep you informed about the action the City is taking: https://www.clovermoore.com.au/nightlife,
I would like to thank the musicians and industry who have spoken so passionately about Sydney at the inquiry so far – working together is the only way we will turn our nightlife around.,
This includes new late night grants for upgrading staging & audio equipment in venues, reviewing planning controls, establishing a nightlife & creative sector advisory panel and exploring an ‘agent of change’ approach to protect music venues from new development.,
It’s why I’ve welcomed the news that the NSW Govt will relax the licence freeze for live music venues & why we’re urgently continuing our work on revitalising Sydney’s nightlife.,
Our live music and nightlife sectors make up a complex ecosystem requiring many factors working together to thrive – and it’s clear that the lockout laws have damaged this ecosystem.
