WILL ARGYLL & BUTE COUNCIL SUPPORT ENTERTAINMENT IN THIS THE YEAR OF CULTURE (AND A DUNOON MOD)

As we wait patiently for the new Argyll and Bute Council to inform us of what their view will be of the recently implemented “Tax on Entertainment “some rumours that councillors have already voiced that this is something imposed on the Council by the Scottish Government and out with their control and that  there are specific difficulties identified as a result of the change to the legislation (implemented by A&B Council) is most disappointing.

Remarks like this make it sound as if the Council have already made a decision.

It seems that in recent times local issues which our viewed by the vast majority of “ordinary “ residents of Argyll and Bute to be easily solved by a common sense matter of fact solution does not always meet with agreement of the citizens who we elect to represent us.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         In fact recently not only have our representative in local government chosen to ignore the wishes of the community but also to disregard the advice of the Scottish Government and place Argyll And Bute out of step with the majority of Scottish councils………………..

NEW PUBLIC ENTERTAINMENT LICENCE TO AFFECT ALL RESIDENTS OF ARGYLL & BUTE INCLUDING THOSE WHO HAVE IMPLEMENTED IT

For several weeks we at Dunoon Community Radio have, like many other interested parties, been very worried about the new Entertainment licence implemented by Argyll & Bute. Out of respect for the recent Council elections we have not publicly aired our views. We now ask that the council reciprocate and address this situation as soon as possible

The implementation of hefty fees to obtain a Public Entertainment Licence for exhibitions and events—including those to be held free of charge—is practically extortion and will cripple grassroots art and culture in Dunoon and Cowal as well as Towns and Cities throughout Scotland.

Small, independent venues such as coffee shops who support artists and performers by hosting free events will not be able to sustain the fees announced.

Argyll and Bute Council introduced this new licence on 1st April the cost of which……………………. (more…)
