Sup­port for drink li­cence

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

SUP­PORT for a liquor li­cence ap­pli­ca­tion by Choo Choos, St Crispins Av­enue, Port Dou­glas, was ap­proved by the Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil with some rec­om­men­da­tions to the Of­fice of Liquor and Gam­ing in re­la­tion to re­duc­ing noise is­sues with ad­ja­cent res­i­dents.

Although the pro­vi­sion of a li­cence is up to the Of­fice of Liquor, Coun­cils can pro­vide rec­om­men­da­tions of con­di­tions to the li­cence.

Cr Noli asked why this ap­pli­ca­tion was not part of the de­vel­op­ment pro­posal and Mr Si­mon Clarke, Coun­cil’s Plan­ning Co­or­di­na­tor, ex­plained that although the busi­ness had been in abeyance for 12 years, this ap­pli­ca­tion would be con­sid­ered “ex­ist­ing use” as the busi­ness was not aban­doned by its owner, merely not op­er­a­tional.

The con­di­tions rec­om­mended by Coun­cil to the Of­fice of Liquor in­clude the in­stal­la­tion of acous­tic noise bar­ri­ers and a re­duc­tion from the re­quested hours from 10am to 12 mid­night to 10am to 10pm.

All sub­mis­sions and com­plaints are to be di­rected to the Of­fice of Liquor and Gam­ing.
