    The RSL has previously sought to increase its noise footprint. The RSL has a very large premises, and it should be expected to arrange its activities so that it does not have negative impacts beyond its boudaries.

    Rejection of this application would not mean the RSL has to go without live/amplified music, or even miss an opportiny to increase its musical activity. Rejection would merely prompt the RSL to allocate its existing spaces to address its most valuable opportunities, which may or may not involve music.

    Adjacent to the RSL is a surf lifesaving club, which might seek to copy whatever noise expansion is permitted at the RSL. I recommend:
    1) Council reject the RSL application,
    2) Any council decisions for the RSL site, should include limitations on the external noise from the combined RSL and Surf club sites, to certain decibel limits; to 10 pm curfew; to limited number of evenings per week.

    I fully support the application by the RSL. I've lived in Cronulla since 1970 and frequented the RSL as a member in my youth and up to today. The RSL is not a private money making concern and it's there for the members and the community at large. It has to compete with the surrounding new, existing and upcoming venues such as the new private pubs at North Cronulla and fronting Monro Park.

    The RSL provides services that the community enjoys. Scott Hogan notes other nearby establishments are providing similar services. Doing it without pokies is to be encouraged! Their success reduces the requirement of council to support the RSL with favorable rule changes. Their success is not a reason for Council to help the RSL ‘compete’.
