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.
