Congratulations, Splendour. You got what you wanted and that is a remarkable achievement. Regardless of the huge majority of local residents (84%) who were never consulted by NBSP objecting to this commercial development, local council’s decision against approval at this site, the dozens of rare and endangered species living in the surrounding protected forest, the last wildlife corridor from the caldera to the coast being cut, the Land and Environment Court throwing out your plans, decades of protection for the Billinudgel Nature Reserve, you managed to get your mega festival. You must have very good lawyers. The clincher was getting state government approval with a widely unpopular Part 3A set up by a corrupt state government and pushing the application through while Part 3A was being dismantled. Clever indeed. While trying to sleep last night to the thump thump of the bass woofers I felt sad that this quiet rural/coastal township and valley have fallen to the persistence of mega commercial interest.
