The WA Police have written to the Director of Liquor Licensing and have prepared a report regarding the evidence and extent of alcohol-related harm being experienced by people in the communities of Kalgoorlie, Boulder, Coolgardie and Kambalda. Following consideration of that correspondence and report, the Director of Liquor Licensing has determined that he is satisfied that the level of alcohol related harm occurring in those communities is such that it would be in the public interest to impose restrictive conditions on relevant licences.

Licensees have now been issued with a “Show Cause” Notice, pursuant to section 64(2a) of the Liquor Control Act 1988, and are offered an opportunity to lodge submissions as to why conditions should not be imposed. Written submissions from licensees must be lodged by no later than close of business 20 July 2012.
