Police have charged a senior member of an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang following alleged planning and development breaches relating to a clubhouse in Kiama.


About 10pm, Saturday 25 May 2013, police attended a commercial building in Browns Road, Kiama where they allegedly heard loud music and witnessed alcohol being consumed on the premises.


Police will allege the building was being used as the clubhouse for the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang. The gang was allegedly holding functions at the premises, which is in contravention of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act.


A 35-year-old man, who police will allege is the Vice President of the Kiama Chapter of the Rebels, was arrested.


He was charged with two counts of carry out specified development prohibited on land and granted conditional bail to appear in Kiama Local Court on Monday 17 June 2013.


Detective Inspector Glen Broadhead, Crime Manager at Lake Illawarra Local Area Command, has warned that anyone found on the premises may be committing an offence.


“The area, in which the clubhouse is located is zoned for commercial/business purposes. Any function or consumption and sale of alcohol at the premises breaches legislation.


“People attending the clubhouse for functions need to know they may be attending an unlawful event and committing an offence,” said Det Insp Broadhead.
