SUBIACO Council unanimously approved an application for Purl Bar on Rokeby Road to increase maximum patronage from 142 to 165 at a committee meeting last month. The State Administrative Tribunal invited councillors to review their January 5 decision to reject the application. Councillor Scott Arbuckle said the increase was quite modest. “In general, I am not in favour of making large increases in this area, but this is a well-managed venue,” Cr Arbuckle said. Cr Julie Matheson said the applicant had provided a management plan and confirmed it would continue to be a mainly seated venue.
