    2. PEOPLE COMMUNITY STRENGTHENING AND SUPPORT

    2.1 MONTMORENCY-ELTHAM RSL ELECTRONIC GAMING MACHINE INCREASE PROPOSAL: COUNCIL RESPONSE TO THE VICTORIAN COMMISSION FOR GAMING AND LIQUOR REGULATION (VCGLR)

    SUMMARY

    The Montmorency-Eltham RSL made an application on 3 September 2014 to the Victorian Commission for Gaming and Liquor (VCGLR) to increase their Electronic Gaming Machines (EGMs) by 43%, from 35 to 50 EGMs. The documents lodged with the VCGLR also include a $1 million renovation. The aim of this report is to present Councils submission to the VCGLR which has very short timelines. However, Councils consideration of the matters at hand, namely the proposed $1 million renovation of the Montmorency RSL building (which is on Council owned land) and 43% increase in EGMs is ongoing and will be thoroughly assessed through the planning permit process which has only just commenced. The planning permit for the renovation and EGM increase was lodged with Council on 6 October 2014. The process to assess the planning permit has only just commenced, and will continue into 2015. The VCGLR is only one of a number of decision making points regarding the EGM increase, but is one that is likely to be favourable. If Council does not make an objection to the VCGLR, this may be construed by the community and the Montmorency-Eltham RSL as tacit approval of the EGM increase and the renovation. This places Council at risk of being seen to make a decision without a clear and transparent process which includes community consultation. The RSL has submitted their Social and Economic Impact Assessment (SEIA) in the VCGLR application rather than providing this directly to Council as requested in 2013, allowing little opportunity for Council or community consideration of the potential impacts of the proposals. This report presents Councils submission to the VCGLR for approval before the lodgement which is due 11 November 2014.

    Resolution (CO2014/372)

    That Council:

    1. Endorse:

    a) Banyules submission to the Victorian Commission for Gaming and Liquor (Attachment 2) to be submitted by 11 November 2014

    b) Banyule City Cou
