Liquor Control Amendment Act 2011 allows enforcement of alcohol-free zones

Date posted: 4 November 2011

Part 3 of the Liquor Control Amendment Act 2011 relating to Liquor Restricted Premises was proclaimed on 8 October 2011. This will allow the Director-General of the Department of Child Protection to apply to have any home in Western Australia declared an alcohol-free zone. It will also allow owner-occupiers of homes and businesses to apply to the director of Liquor Licensing to have their premises declared alcohol restricted. Restrictions on homes can be declared if it was deemed to be in the public interest. Child Protection Director-General Terry Murphy said the laws would be used in extreme cases for children and families known to the department and where there was a continuing risk of harm.
