The ABC brings word of plans by Simon Corbell to quiet Civic down in the small hours of the morning.
- As part of the overhaul, licence fees would rise significantly and would be linked to the risk venues pose to public safety.
Attorney-General Simon Corbell says the changes focus on venues that trade into the early hours of the morning.
Premises trading past midnight would pay more and be slugged again if they stay open past 2:00am and 4:00am.
Apparently the extra fees (which seem like a good balance) will also pay for dedicated policing of responsible drinking.
Due to the powerful stakeholder interests the plan is to consult on this before debating legislation mid next year.
