The decision was described as ‘‘unfair and nonsense’’ by the applicant Mr R Yousif.
Residents were concerned that a liquor shop was not suitable for a low density residential area and that it was too close to Kirrawee High School.
The council originally approved the application to open the liquor shop saying it was permissible in the zoning.
But several councillors lodged a rescission motion and the council reversed its approval.
