Lifestyle change a while off

THE government’s big "Change of Scene" advertising campaign touts a new wining and dining era in WA, one where our liquor licensing laws better suit our lifestyle. But don’t expect the scene to be changing any time soon.As of Tuesday, 25 applications for the liquor without a meal permit had been received by the Department of Racing, Gaming, and Liquor. There are more than 700 licensed restaurants operating in WA. Cottesloe’s Blue Waters Café was the first to apply, which came as a surprise to co-owner Jason McDonald. "I thought that maybe restaurants are not that fussed about it," he said. The Note can hardly blame them given the extra paper work involved. Mr McDonald and his business partner John Moore have had to advertise their application at the café as well as advise its neighbours. The application must be advertised for 14 days and is subject to objections.
