MUSIC bosses have pledged to make this year’s T in the Park “one of the best ever”.
Geoff Ellis, chief executive of promotions company DF Concerts, continued by assuring Perth and Kinross Council’s licensing committee that every effort would be made to ensure music will be the only thing on the minds of the 85,000 revellers flocking to Kinross-shire between July 9 and 11 His promise came as representatives from Tayside Police, Tayside Fire and Rescue and the council’s environmental services department discussed plans for a renewal of the Balado extravaganza’s three-year entertainment licence.
Traffic congestion, noise pollution, crowd control and rubbish collection were all on the agenda. But – re-enforced by Councillor Kathleen Baird – an officer from the local authority revealed that only three people lodged noise-related complaints during TITP’s thirteenth year on the former airfield site.
Following the application’s unanimous approval, committee convener Peter Mulheron closed the meeting by saying; “I hope the next three years are as successful as the last three have been.”
