Permit confusion stirs pub dispute

27 January 2014
Rochelle de Kock

BONNI Tiedemann, the owner of Port Elizabeth garden pub establishment Warmer Gardens, is at her wits’ end and does not know where to turn after several complaints about noise pollution from a neighbour and what she said were continuous attempts by the police to shut down her business.

Although Tiedemann was granted a liquor licence by the Eastern Cape Liquor Board with permission to play music at the 8th Avenue venue, as long as it was not audible beyond the boundary fence, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has only permitted a restaurant, with no alcohol to be sold.

The discrepancy between the Eastern Cape Liquor Board and municipality rulings is a major problem which has resulted in the metro dragging several liquor outlets to court for non-compliance with municipal bylaws.
