Hard start THE RANCH CROP OVER VILLAGE. (FP)

THE RANCH CROP OVER Village may have been one of the most popular entertainment spots throughout the festival but getting it up and running was not without its challenges.

It ended up paying a fine, after its setting-up started before Town Planning permission was received.

According to Paul Johnson, president of Paul’s Enterprises Ltd which owns and operates the facility, securing the necessary planning permission was difficult because the venue was being operated for a three-month period.

“If it were just for one night, you probably wouldn’t have a lot of red tape. You would still have to go and get VAT [and] Town Planning permissions but for one night it’s easier,” he said during an interview with the SUNDAY SUN. (NB)
