Docklands is 50/50 on big bar

27 Nov 2009

Docklanders don’t particular mind large licensed premises, according to the latest Docklands News online survey.

In the lowest response to one of our surveys, only six people responded – with half saying Docklands wants and needs a bar the size of Platform 28.

Platform 28 was recently granted a permit by Planning Minister Justin Madden.  It is a tavern for 750 patrons at the Bourke St end of the historic Goods Shed North.

Platform 28 is currently seeking a liquor licence but is being opposed by the City of Melbourne.

According to a spokesperson from the Department of Justice the Platform 28 application is currently “going through the process” and it will be at least another couple of weeks before a recommendation is made.

Our online survey attraction only one comment:  “The proposal to add life to that area of Docklands is fantastic, although I hope it’s more restaurant/bar that doesn’t result in too much noise out on the streets.”
