(File Ref. No. 12-8275-30-001) (REDMS No. 5924711)



See Page GP-21 for full report



Designated Speaker:  Carli Edwards







That the application from Earls Restaurant (Lansdowne) Ltd, operating at 304 – 5300 No. 3 Road, requesting a Food-Primary Entertainment Endorsement for Patron Participation to Food-Primary Liquor Licence # 170609, to enable patrons to dance at the establishment, be supported; and




That a letter be sent to Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch advising that:





Council supports the amendment for a Patron Participation Entertainment Endorsement on Food-Primary Liquor Licence # 170609 as the endorsement will not have a significant impact on the community;





The hours of liquor sales will remain the same at:






9:00 AM to 1:30 AM, Monday to Saturday






9:00 AM to Midnight, Sunday;





There is no change to the seating capacity for the food primary licence, indoors and patio;




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





The potential for additional noise and traffic in the area was considered;





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





Given that there has been no history of non-compliance with the operation, the amendment to permit patron participation entertainment endorsement under the Food Primary Liquor Licence should not change the establishment such that it is operated contrary to its primary purpose;





As the operation of a licenced establishment may affect nearby residents, businesses and property owners, the impact assessment was conducted through the City’s  community consultation process as follows:






Residents, businesses and property owners within a 50 meter radius of the subject property 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 comments or concerns could be submitted.





Council’s comments and recommendations respecting the view of the residents, businesses and property owners are as follows:






The community consultation process was completed as part of the application process; and






The community consultation process resulted in only one comment or view submitted from residents, businesses and property owners.





Council recommends the approval of the permanent change to add patron participation entertainment endorsement to the Food Primary Licence for the reasons that the addition of the endorsement proposed is acceptable to the majority of the residents, businesses and property owners in the area and the community.
