There are renewed concerns for the well-being of students at Mount Hutton Public School, after the state government refused to reject ALDI’s application for a liquor licence.

The German supermarket giant is seeking approval to sell packaged alcohol from a corner of it’s Dunkley Parade store, less than 100 metres from the school.

It comes just four months the local community successfully campaigned to have plans for a BWS outlet in the area refused.

Greens Upper House MP John Kaye says despite the ALDI plan being smaller than the BWS one, students will be exposed to the same risks.

“It’s still too close to the school, it’s still yet another way for people to buy packaged liquor, it’s still yet another impact on the violence in the region of Mount Hutton.”
