– Licensing compliance: letter to the Wentworth Courier
The following letter from 2011RA president Lucas Crabtree was recently published by the Wentworth Courier 19th October 2011
Waiting with Interest
2011 Resident’s Association calls on the City of Sydney to work with the local police in order to ensure licensed premises in the Kings Cross area are meeting their licensing conditions.
Waverley Council and the Waverley police have worked effectively together to identify and fine premises that are not meeting their obligations. These obligations ensure venues close at specified times, control patron numbers inside and outside venues, limit music and patron noise to permissible levels and control smoking on the street. Waverley Council have recognised the importance of protecting the community and the rights of local residents.
We await with interest to hear how the City of Sydney plans to act to ensure compliance in the Kings Cross (entertainment precinct) local area.
