In Launceston TAS on “Alterations to facilities...” at Paterson St East Car Park 1-15 Paterson Street Launceston TAS 7250:

Graeme Tilley commented

Dear Council

On behalf of Inside Cafe (10-14 Paterson Street) I wish to object to the construction of toilets at 1-15 Paterson Street, Launceston.

Inside Cafe and the co-joined business, Inside Home and Gifts and Inside Boutique is owned and operated by A.W. Birchall and Sons Pty Ltd. Our Company has spent in excess of $500 000 redeveloping the derelict ground floor of this building to make it suitable for our businesses and I believe it has considerably lifted the ambiance and desirability of this part of Paterson Street.

The grounds for our objection is that the proposed toilets are directly opposite, facing the external windows of the Cafe in full view of our clients, which I do not believe is desirable for a food premise. Our future expansion plans for the Cafe includes on street dining which would make this proposal even worse.

Although sympathetic to the need for 24 hour toilets in the CBD, we ask that you revise your plans and move the toilets so they are not directly opposite our business.
