Council supports the applicant’s new Liquor Primary Liquor Licence application and the hours of liquor service with the conditions as listed above;





The total person capacity set at 160 persons is acknowledged; and





Council's comments on the prescribed criteria (Section 71 of the Liquor Control and Licencing Regulations) are as follows:






The impact of additional noise and traffic in the area of the establishment was considered;






The potential impact on the community was assessed through a community consultation process; and






Given that this is a new business, there is no history of non-compliance with this establishment;





As the operation of a licenced establishment may affect nearby residents, businesses and property owners, the City gathered the views of the community through a community consultation process as follows:






Residents, businesses and property owners within a 50 metre radius of the establishment were notified by letter. The letter provided information on the application with instructions on how to submit comments or concerns; and






Signage was posted at the subject property and three public notices were published in a local newspaper. The signage and public notice provided information on the application with instructions on how to submit comments and concerns; and





Council’s comments on the general impact of the views of residents, businesses and property owners are as follows:






The community consultation process was completed within 90 days of the application process; and






That based on the number of letters sent and the few opposed responses received and significant supporting responses received from all public notifications, Council considers that the approval of this application is acceptable to the majority of the residents, businesses and property owners in the area and the community.
