Hobart Australia - THE Rebels Motorcycle Club wants the city council to extend opening hours at its North Hobart clubrooms -- and the neighbours are not happy.
A development application lodged with the Hobart City Council asks for the liquor licensed opening hours to be increased from 10pm to 1am for Tuesday to Saturday.
The clubrooms are described in the application as a "community centre, artists' workshop, social clubrooms".
"Community centres don't usually have stripper poles," said a Letitia St resident, who did not want to be named.
Residents' concerns increased after an anonymous letterbox drop informed locals of the proposed application's contents and encouraged them to make their concerns known to the council.
But according to those who contacted the Mercury, the problem is, to protest a development application residents must give their name and no one is all that keen to do so.
But a Rebels spokesman said there was no cause for concern.
