Allow Fancy Things Wine Bar in Caroline Springs to trade fair & reasonably

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Melton City Council have taken over 5 months to issue a planning permit to allow Fancy Things to open as a licensed venue, the final permit was decided upon without any consultation to us as the applicant & the communities expectations resulting in an extremely prohibitive permit.

This petition will lobby the Melton City Council to give the Caroline Springs community a voice, and allow the community to become a stakeholder in our application to bring the area a boutique business supporting live arts, employment & giving the community a choice when it comes to their evenings out. 

The current permit has been issued with limited trading hours of Fancy Things Wine Bar reducing it to a 10pm (last drinks 9:30pm) closure instead of the standard 11pm on Friday & Saturday evenings, as normal issue for cafe licenses. In addition to limiting our trading hours, they have also ruled we are unable to use our designated open air plaza for any activity after 8pm, and no alcohol is to be consumed at any stage in this space.

We now seek the support of the community to make your own voices heard and support this new business. By signing this partition you will be adding your own voice to the message that Melton City Council needs to hear, and allow Fancy Things the ability to offer responsible and professional service of alcohol in Caroline Springs as a piano bar and tapas restaurant. 

We have requested an 11pm closure Friday & Saturday evenings, and the use of our courtyard space until 9pm for all uses.
