Liquor bans announced for two Kimberley communities

Date posted: 5 April 2011

The Aboriginal communities of Looma and Pandanus Park in the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley will be declared restricted areas under section 175 of the Liquor Control Act 1988 according to Racing and Wagering Minister Terry Waldron. The restrictions give police the power to seize and dispose of opened or unopened liquor containers throughout the community. The proposal to make the communities restricted areas was supported by WA Police and the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley.
