Judith Eleanor started this petition to Gold Coast City Council

Application by The Tavern Thomas Drive Chevron Island for 28 poker machines and a 2AM trading license.

Chevron Island - designated as an extension of the Cultural Precinct.by GCCC.

Thomas Drive Chevron Island - included in Gold Coast Commonwealth Walkway -  - officially opened by HRH Prince Charles in 2018.

"Cultural" Oxford dictionary meaning - Relating to ideas, customs, social behaviour of a society,. the arts and intellectual achievements.

Chevron Island is a unique community offering a lifestyle we all love and regard as "special" .

Some of the concerns of residents, visitors and business owners are list below.

There are numerous venues providing poker machines just off the island.

For addicted gamblers who need access to poker machines until 2AM there is a casino nearby.

Having a gambling house in the center of Thomas Drive could portray a detremental image for efforts to return Chevron Island to it's rightful place as a prestigious destination to live, shop and socialize following COVID.

With gamblers occupying the limited parking available, businesses would be disadvantaged.

We won't feel safe both on the streets and in our homes late at night due to the  possibility of attracting a clientele which is undesirable to the community at large.
