That the application from Happy Tree House BBQ Restaurant Ltd., for an amendment to increase their hours of liquor service under Food Primary Liquor Licence No. 304859 from 9:00 a.m. to midnight Monday to Sunday to 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Monday to Sunday, be supported and that a letter be sent to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch advising that:

 

 

(1)

Council supports the amendment for an increase in liquor service hours as the increase will not have a significant impact on the community;

 

 

(2)

Council’s comments on the prescribed criteria (set out in Section 53 of the Liquor Control and Licensing Regulations) are as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

The potential for additional noise and traffic in the area was considered;

 

 

 

(b)

The impact on the community was assessed through a community consultation process; and

 

 

 

(c)

Given that there has been no history of non-compliance with the operation, the amendment to permit extended hours of liquor service under the Food Primary Liquor Licence should not change the establishment such that it is operated contrary to its primary purpose;

 

 

(3)

As the operation of a licenced establishment may affect nearby residents the City gathered the view of the residents as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

Property owners and businesses within a 50 metre radius of the subject property were contacted by letter detailing the application, providing instructions on how community comments or concerns could be submitted; and

 

 

 

(b)

Signage was posted at the subject property and three public notices were published in a local newspaper.  This signage and notice provided information on the application and instructions on how community comments or concerns could be submitted; and

 

 

(4)

Council’s comments and recommendations respecting the view of the residents are as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

That based on the number of letters sent and the lack of response received from all public notifications, Council considers that the amendment is acceptable to the majority of the residents in the area and the community.
