At the last meeting of Kirkby on Bain Parish Council issues arising from the Equinox Music Festival held near the village in September were discussed. A summary of the discussion will be available in the draft minutes, to be published here as soon as possible.
Since the meeting, Councillors have been made aware of feedback from East Lindsey District Council Licensing Section regarding the conduct of the festival, particularly regarding noise nuisance, in the form of an extract from a review provided by the ELDC monitoring team of the first hand monitoring carried out during the festival, and of the noise information and audio recordings obtained from within properties in Tumby and Kirkby on Bain. The review also includes references to complaints lodged by one Kirkby on Bain resident and other complaints received from residents of the Pilgrim Square area of Coningsby and Tumby.
