Cafes and restaurants
If a planning permit has been granted for the use of the premises as a restaurant/cafe/bar, or the premises has 'existing-use rights' for that use, then Council must ensure that the liquor licence conditions reflect the conditions of the existing permit.
Where the use is as-of-right, in that the use of the premises does not require a planning permit, then the need to have a permit for the liquor licence introduces a control over the use.
