Council looking for feedback on event holiday dates

CLARENCE Valley Council has been invited to apply to the NSW Industrial Relations for the 2015 local public holidays or event days, but has been asked to provide community feedback to support its application.

As council undertook wide ranging public consultation last year, NSW Industrial Relations do not require the same level this year, but did ask that council offer people the opportunity to comment.

Event organisers have nominated the following local public holidays for 2015 and spread of hours:

  • Maclean Show - Wednesday April 22, from noon to 5pm
  • Ramornie Races - Wednesday, July 8, from 1pm to 5pm
  • Grafton Cup - Thursday, July 9, from 1pm to 5pm
  • Jacaranda Thursday - Thursday, November 5, from 1pm to 5pm

The spread of hours is the same as the 2014 approvals.

Comment from the public, including the business and schools sectors, is now invited on the proposed public holidays.

Submissions close at 4 pm on October 1, 2014. Inquiries to brian.lane@clarence.nsw.gov.au
