The City of Sydney had done a lot of work to our planning rules to permit later night trading. I was pleased to speak at the ANZ Night Time Economy forum where I discussed the balancing act the City has to go through to develop late night economy.
Unfortunately there is a bit of a disconnect when rangers turn up and shut down noisy pentanque games.
Or shut down parts of a 107 year old hotel without justification after a new block of units is built next door. 15 years of this Council administration has done nothing to protect small businesses from minor irritating and unfair complaints. I will continue to press Council to introduce fairer noise complaint rules that don't punish businesses who are doing the right thing Watch some footage from the panel HERE
