In following up on this I've been told that NSW Police, not Council, recently issued a $3000 penalty infringement notice to the Hopetoun for failure to provide adequate security personnel in accordance with their development consent. This is a requirement of the Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing.
It would be interesting to ask how officers of the Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing feel about hotels that do not have pocker machines!!
Council has not issued any order for the premises to close.
I will be discussing this further with a number of Hopetoun supporters to see what action can be taken to support the Hopetoun.
