That idea didn't quite work out when they charged for the fireworks.
I think the difference is professional orgs running the event.
The council says they will make 100k from these events, there is an upside to events in the parks.
Im not going to get a tape measure out but it's alot more than that.
So they keep telling us, yet they can build a new town hall.
And where's that money going? Is it all going back into the upkeep of the park?
A: No. They've got an expensive vanity nu-Town Hall to fund.
According to this https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/sites/default/files/lsp-brockwell-park-summer-2018-events-2.pdf
Here is a map, the event site is marked
It’s less than 1/5 of the park.
£120,000 they say?
“Each event will pay the highest level of Park Investment Levy (£0.50 per person per day), which could generate £120,000”
Will pay 50p per person per day.
could generate 120k.
Do the organisers pay Lambeth more than the 50p per person per day for the event ?
As there is nothing here about what the council gets paid, just what the park gets.
Not all of it is open space. The events take place on the biggest open part which is left in a bad state for weeks afterwards. Me and my son used to pull metal ties, screws and trodden in glass from the ground so he could play football.
Are you sure? My understanding is that Lambeth Events still posts a loss every year.
Fascinating. I'd be really interested to hear your views on global warming and the spherical shape of our planet.
Are you saying that Lambeth will find a way to spend more than 100k hosting field day ?
