The Central Coast Liquor Licence Response project works to reduce harm related excessive alcohol availability. Limiting alcohol availability is a key pillar in reducing alcohol related harm in the National Drug strategy and Health Promotion plays a vital role in implementing this pillar.
Each new liquor licence application or liquor licence amendment must follow a range of processes set out by Liquor & Gaming NSW before being granted. This process includes public consultation and it is at this stage Health Promotion can step it. Health Promotion assesses each application and engages the wider community to determine the overall impact the licence may have. Based on this assessment Health Promotion provides evidence-based recommendations aimed to minimise any potential harm.
Public consultation is not restricted to governing bodies but can also be made on the individual level. The following logo will take you the Liquor & Gaming Application noticeboard where you can search for all local applications and have your say:
