The vision of the Dubbo City Youth Council to bring the West View Drive-in back to life has officially be given the go ahead with the approval of the development application to reopen the Drive-in for one weekend in April.
“The development application was approved this week after extensive work was done to ensure that the Drive-in would be safe to use for this special event,” Dubbo Regional Council Youth Development Officer Jason Yelverton said.
“The site has been dormant 32 years so there was a lot that needed to be taken into consideration in order to get the go ahead to use the drive-in including the development of a traffic management plan, the number of cars allowed at each screening, an emergency plan and lighting on the site.”
“Now that we have received approval work can begin in earnest on making the Youth Council’s vision a reality in time for National Youth Week in April.”
“One of the next steps is organising food for the event and we are looking for expressions of interest for caterers for the event.”
“The Youth Council needs six food vendors who must be available to work on all three nights of the event, have public liability insurance, a completed risk assessment and meet the temporary event guidelines from the NSW Food Authority.”
“We want a variety of foods to be available during the event so we have also asked for proposed menus so we can make the best decision for the event.”
“A lot of hard work has been done and there is still more to do to make this event one of the best that the Youth Council has ever done.”
