Amended liquor control regulations

As many of you will be aware, WARVRA recently made a submission on your behalf to Minister Paul Papalia to have the Liquor Control Act amended to permit Retirement Villages to gain an exemption from the Liquor Control Regulations 1989, and allow Residents Committees, or similar bodies, to be able to offer alcoholic drinks for sale within the village.

WARVRA’s submission met with approval and a copy of the Amended Regulations is attached for your information and records.

May I take this opportunity to sincerely thank Paul Fricker and Neville Thorpe (Bethanie Waters Village) and Des Cousins (Harbourside Village) for their significant contribution in obtaining this outcome.

The relevant amendment is available to view in this PDF file.
