“Venue manager and tenant Lesley Dimmick was given 60 days to meet the basic fire safety requirements. However, during that time, the City of Sydney discovered a much bigger problem. A search of its records revealed that for the past 22 years, the venue has been running without permission to use the upstairs space as a theatre.
Dimmick was told she must put in a development application to gain consent to run as a theatre and meet the minimum standards required of a place of assembly, which includes disability access. The application deadline is November 4.”
