Protest over liquor licence

Redland Times19/5/2008

ANGRY Coochiemudlo Island residents will meet on Thursday to discuss the approval of a general liquor licence on the island.

Consul Management Pty Ltd has successfully applied to the Commercial and Consumer Tribunal for a liquor licence allowing it to sell takeaway alcohol from the Bayview on Coochie building.

The Liquor Licensing Division had previously rejected the application.

The island’s progress association has called a public meeting at the Coochiemudlo Island Community Hall on Thursday, May 22, at 7pm. Enquiries to Bruce Green on 3207 8895.
