Origin

(October 17, 2013) Letter from Councillor Adam Vaughan, Ward 20, Trinity-Spadina

Summary

Castle Café Inc. has submitted an application for a new liquor licence to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (“AGCO”) for a premises at 454 Spadina Avenue operating under the name Castle Board Game Café (the “Premises”). The applicant is seeking a liquor licence for an indoor capacity of 148 patrons.

 

The Premises is located immediately adjacent to a residential area. Neighbouring residents and the local Councillor’s office are concerned that the operation of a licensed restaurant will impact neighbouring residents. Potential impacts relate to noise, safety, litter, and other matters. This application for a liquor licence is not in the public interest unless certain conditions, addressing the concerns of the community, are attached to the licence.
