I will continue Clover’s push for more police to manage weekend late night areas to prevent impacts on adjacent residents, particularly “pre-fuelling”, noise and anti-social behaviour.
We need better late night transport options to get people home from Kings Cross, Oxford Street and the CBD. I will call for renewable late night liquor permits to encourage good management as in New York and Paris, and for planning law reform to enable councils to refuse venues in areas that have reached saturation. The freeze on new liquor licenses in Kings Cross must be continued until these measures are in place.
