Coun­cil grants liquor li­cence

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

A Long­warry café has re­ceived plan­ning per­mis­sion to sell al­co­hol.

Baw Baw Shire Coun­cil has ap­proved an ap­pli­ca­tion to al­low Soul Sis­ters Café in Mackey St to sell al­co­hol at the premises.

In a re­port to coun­cil, of­fi­cers said the plan­ning per­mit would pro­vide an ad­di­tional ser­vice to an ex­ist­ing com­mer­cial use.

“It is con­sid­ered that the pro­posed use of the site will con­trib­ute to the com­mer­cial area of Long­warry and as­sist in im­prov­ing the ser­vice and fa­cil­i­ties of an ex­ist­ing busi­ness,” the re­port said.

Of­fi­cers said the café was lo­cated in the town’s com­mer­cial area and a liquor li­cence was un­likely to cause any loss of amenity to the area.

Per­mit con­di­tions state al­co­hol can be only served be­tween 11am and 4pm.

The ap­pli­ca­tion was ad­ver­tised and there were no ob­jec­tions.

Cr Jes­sica O’Don­nell said this was a fan­tas­tic idea and pro­vided an ad­di­tional ser­vice to what was al­ready pro­vided at the café.

Cr Michael Leaney said the café was meet­ing cus­tomer ex­pec­ta­tions of to­day.

Cr Peter Kos­tos said there were houses lo­cated near the café but in this in­stance there had been no ob­jec­tions.
