Un­der Wraps, un­der threat

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

UN­DER Wraps café is un­der threat of clo­sure af­ter re­ceiv­ing a let­ter to re­move a large sec­tion of out­door seat­ing from the State Gov­ern­ment.

Owner Wayne Sta­ple­ton had ap­plied for a per­ma­nent shade struc­ture with the Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil which, ac­cord­ing to the let­ter, spoke with the De­part­ment of Trans­port and Main Roads and re­jected the ap­pli­ca­tion. TMR also asked coun­cil to have the foot­path din­ing re­lo­cated in the “in­ter­ests of pedes­trian safety” be­cause it was too close to the pedes­trian cross­ing. Mr Sta­ple­ton met with a coun­cil of­fi­cer on Fri­day to ex­press his con­cern of los­ing the area, which would cost him 50 per cent of his trade.
