Pasadena Pantry Liquor Licence Meeting

Dear Community Groups,
As you know a Community Impact Statement has been undertaken as a preliminary step to lodgement of an application for a package liquor licence to the Licensing Authority.

Prior to lodging an application with the Authority I would like to arrange a meeting with all interested stakeholders and potential objectors to attend so the application can be discussed and views ventilated by all parties before it is lodged.
I have tried unsuccessfully to have Council respond to my request for a venue to stage such a meeting and am now formally writing to you to ask if you can suggest a facility available that can be used for this purpose.

Whilst I am happy to host such a meeting at Pasadena I am conscious of hosting it at a neutral venue if possible.
Can you please let me know if you have such a venue we can use and advise me of some suitable dates top hold such a meeting.

My contact number is 0424190188 or Paul 0412646535- paul@logicdesignbuild.com
