MOUNTIES CURRENT MATTERS & FOLLOW UP

4. Traffic

1. Complaints Management

- Traffic flow has been successful with the new Humphries road club entrance for arrivals and departures keeping the noise level and traffic management to a minimum.

- Neighbours were informed that minimal complaints were received in the review period. A few construction complaints were received and were dealt with quickly and followed up with the Neighbours. - Very few patron behaviour complaints were received. This has decreased over the year due to the change in club entertainment. We no longer host live bands or DJs in the general public area and have now gone with entertainment that compliments the food and is more laid back and easy listening.

- Strict management procedures and guidelines are in place to ensure the traffic during construction is minimal No complaints or feedback received 5. Noise Management - Mounties have received positive feedback from neighbours regarding the levels of noise coming from the club throughout the year with construction work and patron behaviour

No complaints or feedback received

No further complaints or feedback received 2. Patron Behaviour - Neighbours were advised that anti-social behaviour has been reduced significantly due to the hard work of the board, management, staff and security.

6. General Business Floor is opened up the all attendees for general discussion. No feedback or complaints were received

No complaints or feedback received 7. Future Developments 3. Security

- Darren Marino - General Manager presented neighbours with updates on present and future club development

- Additional cameras have been implemented during the development stages with over 500 cameras

- New members / sports bar area due for completion in late August.

- Positive feedback has been provided regarding the security boundary car that is patrolling the area. It has been advised that the car has helped with decreasing poor patron behaviour in the area.

- Mounties have just started with the interior refurbishment of the gaming floor which will continue for the next 18 months. - Underground carpark was meant to start this July but has now been pushed back to July 2018 due to cash flow and the size of the project

-Introduction of additional female security will be put into place in the coming weeks to assist and provide a softer approach with female patron behaviour
