There will be no liquor shop in Putland Close, Kirrawee after Sutherland Shire Council reversed its decision last night.

The decision was described as ‘‘unfair and nonsense’’ by the applicant Mr R Yousif.

Residents were concerned that a liquor shop was not suitable for a low density residential area and that it was too close to Kirrawee High School.

The council originally approved the application to open the liquor shop saying it was permissible in the zoning.

But several councillors lodged a rescission motion and the council last light reversed its approval.

Mr Yousif said he had been happy to comply with all the conditions including having an alcohol free zone, CCTV and staff trained in responsible serving of alcohol.

‘‘Is it politics because there is an election coming on?’’ he said.

‘‘What about all the other bottle shops in the shire which are close to schools? Are going to close those as well?’’

Do you approve of the council’s decision to refuse the liquor store in Kirrawee?
