Liquor Review Begins

Monday, 15 February 2016

The review of the ‘lockout laws’ which include 1.30am lockouts, 3am cessation of service in the CBD, Oxford Street Darlinghurst and Kings Cross, 10pm takeaway liquor sales stoppage and risk based licensing has begun. An issues paper will be released for public comment; however the review is also taking comments for this paper and I encourage you to contribute.

There is division in the community about these laws, with some, including hospital emergency services, calling for them to continue indefinitely and be extended across the State, while others, particularly people who go out, calling for them to be overturned. It is critical that all those affected help improve the laws so that Sydney can be both safe and vibrant at night. Details of the review: www.justice.nsw.gov.au/liquorlawreview
