Local Alcohol Policy (LAP)
The provisional policy was notified on 1 March 2014 and anyone who submitted on the draft policy had the opportunity to appeal to the licensing authority if they felt that any part of the provisional policy was unreasonable with the object of the Act.
3 parties lodged appeals, two of whom withdrew.
On 24 July 2017 the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority adopted the resubmitted Local Alcohol Policy.
The Local Alcohol Policy will come into force on 1 December 2017 that being three months after the first notification in the local newspaper.
