    100% support this. Sydney needs more to this and TSQ is in dire need of life.
    Would also love for sound restrictions to be relaxed on weekends seeing as how it is a major traffic intersection.

    I realise that Agent of Change means that Fredas is the responsible party here but it would be geat if the OXST planning review would address the issue of some residents complainting about music on a main traffic thoroughfare as well as Syney's last Entertainment precinct.

    Would also be great if the Police were a last resort in the case of sound disturbances.

    I am most supportive of this application- the footpath in that area is wide enough to accommodate tables and chairs. Isn’t that what the wider pavement was designed for?
    As for noise from the venue, the ambient traffic noise (buses and trucks especially) create so much noise, it masks the music from the venue.
    Cities are noisy - but they should also be lively. Freda’s cafe brings life to Taylor Square!
