Following consideration of the WA Police and the West Pilbara Alcohol Management Group jointly prepared report regarding the evidence and extent of alcohol-related harm being experienced by people in communities situated in the Pilbara, as well as the comments and submissions received on that report, the Director of Liquor Licensing has determined that he is satisfied that the level of alcohol related harm occurring in the communities of the Pilbara is such that it would be in the public interest to impose restrictive conditions on relevant licences.
The detailed report, a supplementary report prepared by the WA Police, and all of the comments and submissions received can be accessed by clicking on the links below:

Written submissions from licensees must be lodged by no later than close of business 22 June 2012.
