I am a council Development Officer in another council area and would be interested to find out more.
Also just because council says its an illegal operation does not mean they will do anything about it.

I've just been reading a thread on Grumpy's forum about this (title = Cafe Expansion). From what I can gather is the proposed expansion from a "cafe" to a "restuarant" has been knocked back because the extension would encroach on possible flood areas from a nearby river.
No mention in the council's minutes about being "illegal".
There is a link to these minutes in the thread.

Cheers

It'd be great if Grumpy's moved their operation down to the city. Hahndorf is too far to go for a nice pint, especially when you have to worry about people driving home.

Grumpys is fine where it is (15mins away from me) and it's location certainly adds to its atmosphere and charm. Besides with the amount of idiots, tools and thugs who can't hold their booze in the city these days... <ramble over>

Yeah, but Grumpy's could be a great haven away from those sorta kooks. I don't think those types would generally be interested in a fine microbrew. I do live in the city though, so I may be a bit biased about having some Grumps on tap down here ;-)

Off to Grumpys myself tonight - from the city, by bus!

Will make sure to let Andrew and Thoms know that AHB is rooting for them.

Just got the paper ourselves and the boss is at a meeting. Much text in the paper is out of context, ain't much else to report.

Well I know personally from mountain biking and the 'kerfuffle & brew-ha-ha' (yes, those are the technical terms) in Randell's Reserve that the stuff reported in the Adelaide Messenger local papers can be kinda close, yet somewhat far from the truth.

As it happens when I am not brewing I am a hydrogeologist, and if Grumpys need a report saying that the flood level is somewhere else, then a reciprocal agreement might see one written using quite big words on very offical looking letterhead. A years supply of malt plus use of the goat for "big shit" mashing?
