Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Elvis has Left the Building

My dog died. I haven’t been able to write about it until now. It was a month ago, and he was old, but it was still unexpected, and it leaves you feeling a bit raw.

We are locals who own townhouses opposite Barrio [at Byron Bay’s Sunrise estate] and we object to a liquor licence because the venue is too noisy already. Other owners and residents share our concerns.

Dan Wyllie acknowledges that Barrio is ‘definitely going to change the atmosphere’ in Bayshore Drive because of ‘a lot of different noise’.

However, the Development Application (DA) for the Habitat site where Barrio is located says that ‘The use of the premises shall not interfere with the amenity of the neighbourhood by reason of noise’ (Section 81).

We call on Byron Shire Council to enforce the DA and ensure that Barrio contain the noise of the 120-150 customers they have on three evenings per week.

For starters, council could direct Barrio to close their windows and restrict outdoor dining to their internal courtyard from 5pm.
