Public Interest Assessment - Form 2A
As part of its report to the Minister for Racing and Gaming the Liquor Act Review Committee recommended, amongst other things, that theLiquor Control Act 1988 be amended to require applicants for new licences to complete a Community Impact Statement to support their application.
In response to this recommendation, the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor has developed a form to assist applicants in the preparation of a Public Interest Assessment (PIA) submission by setting out the criteria contained in the Director of Liquor Licensing’s policy - Public Interest Assessment in a questionnaire format.
The form will be available in two formats – a word template and a printable adobe/pdf document and can be accessed on the Department’s website.
Applicants should note that the space provided in the printable adobe/pdf document is not an indication of the amount of information which should be provided and additional information can be provided as an attachment if necessary.
Please note, it is not a mandatory requirement to complete the PIA Form 2A to prepare a PIA submission – this form has been provided to assist applicants in the preparation of a PIA by providing a questionnaire format – applicants can prepare a PIA submission in an alternate format if they wish.
