New area for al­co­hol sales

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

The area where al­co­hol can be sold and con­sumed at the West Gipp­s­land Arts Cen­tre has been amended to cater for the re­de­vel­oped cen­tre.

A re­port to Baw Baw Shire said amend­ing the area where al­co­hol could be sold or con­sumed would al­low the arts cen­tre to pro­vide a ser­vice to pa­trons while meet­ing statu­tory re­quire­ments.

Of­fi­cers said there would be no al­ter­ations to the pro­posed hours of oper­a­tion and it was not there would be no loss of amenity.

The ap­pli­ca­tion to amend the area was ad­ver­tised and no ob­jec­tions re­ceived.

Cr Michael Leaney said ev­ery­one who had been to the arts cen­tre would know how won­der­ful it was.

“Clearly the pre­vi­ous liquor li­cence is in­valid be­cause it doesn’t con­sume the area of the cur­rent build­ing,” he said.

Cr Tri­cia Jones said af­ter ex­pand­ing the au­di­to­rium it made sense to ex­pand the liquor li­cence area for the pa­trons to im­prove their whole theatre ex­pe­ri­ence.
