June 2022 - Council Approves Beach Bar Trial

In our article Foreign company given our beach for free we outline the issues surrounding unprecedented access to Gold Coast beaches to a select company to sell alcohol.

Gold Coast Bulletin article "Council Approves Bar Trial"

"Only councillors Brooke Patterson, Peter Young, Bob La Castra and Daphne McDonald, at a full council meeting at Evindale Chamber on Tuesday, voted against the recommendation"

Cr Brooke Patterson:

"Planning changes allowing a future bar applicant to make a 'material change of use' for the site."

Many Gold Coasters are shocked to hear our new Mayor say '...the question is not if there will be a cruise ship terminal - but where' and to hear a foreign developer describe our Broadwater as a 'wasteland'.

SOSA does NOT accept these propositions - & we hope you don't either. In 2005, 38,000 Gold Coasters signed petitions against a ship terminal in The Spit or in the Broadwater. Nothing has changed - we are all still here... & some. It seems some people have forgotten...
