What is the City Proposing?
Why is the City Proposing the Scheme Amendment?
The proposed amendment is sought to more effectively manage where packaged alcohol can be sold and provide clarity on where these premises are permitted within the City of Bayswater.
It has come to the City's attention that it is possible to sell packaged liquor under liquor licences other than 'Liquor Store'. The current definitions for 'Liquor Store- Large' and 'Liquor Store - Small' do not appear to sufficiently manage situations where a liquor store is proposed under a different liquor licence (i.e. hotel or tavern). Therefore, it is considered necessary to modify the definitions for liquor store large and small to include premises under other liquor licences which are permitted to sell packaged liquor.
Liquor licence types under the Liquor Control Act 1988 that will fall under the Liquor Store definition as a result of this Amendment.
· Hotel Restricted
· Special facility
· Liquor Store
Will this Scheme Amendment impact existing approvals?
No, existing premises will not be affected by this Scheme Amendment. If the Scheme Amendment is approved, only future development applications would be affected by the provisions of the Amendment.
