It is great that AIDA has an actively involved membership and we are always pleased to receive queries and comments from you.
We received one in October querying an online application to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation for a liquor licence for a restaurant and café in Aireys Inlet.
Our member commented – ‘If Google maps are correct, this would seem somewhat inappropriate in the middle of a residential area.’ So we followed up and here’s what we found!!
We rang the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) to follow up on the application for a restaurant and cafe licence at 39 Beach Road Aireys Inlet which was online. At the same time we put in a call to Surf Coast Planning to see why the application had not been advertised. In the meantime, we had a 101 message from the girl spoken to at the VCGLR who had looked into the matter and said that the ad was a dummy put in by their IT department to test the system! There is NO application, and Surf Coast planning found that 39 is a vacant block, with no application either.
