SU­BI­ACO coun­cil­lors ap­proved a draft Liquor Li­cens­ing Pol­icy at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, de­spite Cr Mark Burns say­ing it would be “the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin” for lo­cal hos­pi­tal­ity. The pol­icy, in­tended to sim­plify small bar li­cens­ing, will be ad­ver­tised for pub­lic com­ment be­fore re­turn­ing to Coun­cil for fur­ther de­lib­er­a­tion. Cr Scott Ar­buckle said the cur­rent pol­icy was an “un­nec­es­sary bar­rier to business”, but delet­ing “whole swathes of pol­icy” was ask­ing for con­flict.
