Big Chill Update

Big Chill Update

From the organizers to the Parish Council
Dear Councillor

I wanted to let you know that we are now onsite and the build for the Big Chill Festival 2011 has commenced. As previously mentioned in the letter I sent out in May the festival this year is being held from Wednesday 3rd – Monday 8th August 2011.

Should you or anyone in your Parish have a complaint about noise or any other issue, the complaints hotline number is where this needs to be registered. The telephone number is 01531 630 230 and is currently operational from 8am – 8pm every day. This will become a 24 hour hotline from 8am Wednesday 3rd August to 6pm on Monday 8th August.

If the answer machine comes straight on this will be because another call is in progress so please leave a message and we will call you straight back. Noise levels are regulated and monitored by our onsite acoustic consultants and Environmental Health at Herefordshire Council.

Under the Premise Licence Number PR01471 issued by Herefordshire Council on the 26th May it states that music can be played at the following times;

Thursday 4th August
12.00 – 00:00
Friday 5th August
00:00 – 05:00 and 09:00* – 00:00
Saturday 6th August
00:00 – 05:00 and 09:00* – 00:00
Sunday 7th August
00:00 – 05:00 and 09:00* – 00:00
Monday 8th August
00:00 – 03:00

* From 09.00 – 12.00 the music will be limited to the kids area
In addition there will be some sound checks on Thursday evening between 17.30hrs – 19.30hrs.

The following Public Footpaths have been temporarily closed to ensure no danger to the public is caused during the build of the festival. The Orders came into force on 11th July 2011, and the footpaths will all re-open on Friday 12th August

  • The Public Footpath from County Road on the A438 across Eastnor Park.

  • The Public Footpath from the A449 opposite Barton Farm

  • The Public Footpath at Keepers Lodge

  • The Public Footpath from the A449 opposite Lower Mitchell Farm (SO Grid Ref 726 388 400) to its junction with Netherton Farm

The following orders have been granted by Herefordshire Council’s Highway Department;

·         A temporary Speed Limit of 20mph will be applied on the A449 from the county boundary for 250m past the Purple Gate entrance from Wednesday 3rd August at 06.00hrs until Monday 8th August at 18.00hrs.

·         A temporary Speed Limit of 30mph will be applied 250m either side of Red Gate (Massington Farm). This will come in to effect from Wednesday 3rd August 2011 at 06.00hrs to Monday 8th August 2011 at 18.00hrs.

·         A temporary speed limit of 30mph will be applied from Woodside until you leave Eastnor village – in the normal 50mph speed limit. This will take effect from Wednesday 3rd August 2011 at 06.00 to Monday 8th August 2010 at 18.00hrs
·         There will be temporary traffic lights at Purple Gate on Monday 8th August 2011 from 06.00 until 18.00. These will operate on a 3 way basis, to allow traffic to exit the site – turning right only back to Little Malvern.

·         There will be a temporary ‘no right turn’ applied to Purple Gate from the Ledbury direction into the site from Wednesday 3rd August 2011 at 06.00 to Monday 8th August 2011 at 18.00.

The designated gates and routes that will be used for the festival are as follows:

If someone should trespass on your land, then please call the Police. While we are not able to prevent people from accessing the public highways or keep them onsite, we will again have an on site supermarket and a variety of stalls onsite, which will be advertised both in advance publicity and on site. I hope that these measures will deter people from wandering in the surrounding area.

If you have any other matters you wish to raise please write to me, my address is Festival Republic Ltd, 35 Bow Street, London WC2E 7AU.
Kind regards

Melvin Benn, Premises Licence Holder, Big Chill Festival 201
