Police had advised they supported the OUSA in their request for the temporary alcohol ban if it would assist them with the safe running of their events.

6 Appointment to the Gambling and TAB Venue Policy Hearing Committee

 

At its meeting on 17 October 2017, the Planning and Environment Committee appointed Councillor David Benson-Pope (Chair), Councillor Marie Laufiso and Councillor Conrad Stedman to a hearing committee to consider submissions received on its draft Gambling and TAB Venue Policy, following public consultation. The hearing was scheduled for the morning of 20 February 2018 starting at 9.00 a.m.

Due to another Council commitment, Councillor Benson-Pope was now unable to attend the hearing on 20 February. After discussions with the Mayor, Councillor Aaron Hawkins was proposed to replace Councillor Benson-Pope on the hearing committee and to chair the committee.

Council was asked to consider the report under urgency, given the late change in availability of Councillor Benson-Pope, and acknowledging that some submitters had booked flights to attend the hearing.

 

Moved (Cr Kate Wilson/Cr Mike Lord):

That the Council:

 

a) Appoints Councillor Aaron Hawkins as Chair of the Gambling and TAB Venue Policy Hearing Committee, replacing Councillor David Benson-Pope.

Motion carried (CNL/2018/005)
