The Committee unanimously supported the recommendation.


PMNSW is partnering with Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA) and the City of Sydney (CoS) to deliver a pilot that will streamline outdoor alcohol licensing requirements for venues. The Rocks hotels and restaurants have been put forward as the initial priority focus to trial new regulations to assist local tenants in The Rocks for extended trading.

An on-site meeting was held 29th September 2020 at The Australian Hotel with TfNSW, CoS, Police Licensing, Avert Risk and PMNSW to discuss this activation and review streamlining similar future activations under the pilot program.

The areas have been established / set up since October 2020 under the approved terms of use and have had no impacts on existing traffic, parking or loading zones and are planned to be in place until 30th April 2022.

This proposal is for the endorsement by LPCTCC of the existing activities until 30 April 2022.

Location 1: Adjacent to The Glenmore Hotel (western side of Cumberland Street, north of Argyle Street).

Location 2: Adjacent to The Australian Hotel (western side of Cumberland Street, south of Gloucester Street.)

Location 3 is located adjacent to Maybe Sammy at 111 Harrington St (western side of Harrington Street, North of Essex Street.)

The requested bays in 1 & 2 locations are 4 x Parking Bays. Location 3 is 3 spaces but HVM is utilising the first space and 2 remaining spaces activated. (Total of 11 x Bays.)
