Reviewing feedback

A small local café in Freshwater, Shaka@Freshwater, is seeking a five (5) year licence for 24.36sqm of outdoor dining on land known as Freshwater Reserve, adjacent to the café premises at 37 Moore Road Freshwater.

The business has an existing outdoor dining licence, expiring in February 2022, to use 12sqm of decked outdoor dining space on Council land at this location.

They are reapplying for a five (5) year licence for the existing area and an additional decked area of 12.36sqm immediately adjacent.

The proposal does not authorise any overall increase in patron numbers and is subject to a licence fee payment.

The licence will enable the applicant (Shaka@Freshwater) to operate its business on Council land, providing seating and other dining facilities to customers of the adjoining restaurant. Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on businesses, the applicant intends for the majority of patrons to dine outside when weather permits.

In accordance with Section 47A of the Local Government Act 1993, notice was given of our intention to licence the land formally known as Lot 17 Sec 1 DP 7022.

The proposal was exhibited between Wednesday 20 October and Sunday 21 November 2021. Feedback is now being reviewed and considered and will be reported on this page in the coming weeks.
