    As a resident of Shepherd Street and owner of two residential houses there, I strongly object to this proposal. Shepherd Street is currently a quiet residential street (with the exception of pubs on intersections with George Street and Cleveland St).

    As it stands, from where I live (in-between 55 and 32 Shepherd St) I can already hear noise from bars up until 10-11pm or so, after which there is usually a flood of patrons leaving the premise and walking directly past my front door (and bedroom). As it stands, I can't get to sleep because of noise until the local bars close.

    The problem with the 2am closing time is that the challenge I experience (inability to sleep until bars close and patrons go home) will now be extended until the early hours of the morning. This is unacceptable as far as I'm concerned.

    I do not mind development on Shepherd St provided that it does not lead to disturbances until such an early hour. A 10 or 11pm closing is fine but a 2am closing is too extreme.

    This proposal will destroy the mood of what is currently a beautiful residential street. Please do not allow noise after 10 or 11am on a weekday (and perhaps 12 or 1am on a Saturday).

    Kind Regards,

    I read with great concern that this bar wishes to open until 2am, 7 days a week. Shepherd St is largely a residential area and this bar is surrounded by residents who would like to go to sleep at night. As it is, it can be quite noisy after 11pm and it concerns me that this noise will continue up until 2am which is totally unfair to residents like me, who have been living in the area for a long time. In buying my house on Shepherd St, I was not expecting to find it difficult to sleep - especially as late as 2am in the morning. Please oppose these extended trading hours in respect for me and the hundreds of other residents in the vicinity. There are plenty of other locations along Broadway where these people can go and drink at night if they so wish. Residents' rights should be protected by council.
