In Alexandria NSW on “Serbian Orthodox Church...” at Church Hall Renwick St, Alexandria 2015:

Michael Knapp commented

The church sits on a quiet suburban street, and typical of inner-south suburbs, parking is at a premium.

This application should be rejected for the following reasons:

1. The church has no off-street parking. Whenever the church has a function, local residents are forced to park many streets away from their houses.
2. Allowing them to serve liquor will result in them increasing the number of functions they currently hold.
3. People attending functions are often loud, disrespectful of local residents, breaking glass in the street and carrying on in an obnoxious manner.
4. Already the church serves alcohol so allowing them to serve even more alcohol will increase what is really unacceptable behaviour

I am not against any group being allowed to serve liquor, but not in the middle of a quiet residential area. Allowing a liquor licence will greatly exacerbate what is already undesirable behaviour and an unacceptable intrusion into the lives of people living nearby.

For all the above reasons, and on the basis it simply flies in the face of what is reasonable and fair, this application must be rejected
