If you do believe it is necessary for you to be in attendance we encourage you to notify Democratic Services, by email to democraticservices@eastsuffolk.gov.uk, of your intention to do so no later than 12 noon on the working day before the meeting so that the meeting can be managed in a COVID secure way and the Team can endeavour to accommodate you and advise of the necessary health and safety precautions.

The Sub-Committee received report ES/0893. An application had been received to give a film to be screened at the Riverside Theatre, Woodbridge on 26 September 2021 an appropriate admission classification.

 

The Sub-Committee members had viewed the film on 20 September 2021. 

 

The Chairman invited the Sub-Committee to comment on the film. The Sub-Committee considered the film to be an interesting art project highlighting the landscapes and habitats of the area. The Sub-Committee noted that as a dance piece focussing on the natural world there was no imagery which would not be suitable for younger or sensitive children. The Sub-Committee applied the guidance of the British Board of Film Classification in determining the appropriate admission criteria.
