Alcohol management plans

 

Overview

Alcohol management plans (AMPs) vary in design and implementation across Australia and include strategies designed to reduce harms resulting from alcohol use. The majority of AMPs are based on the principle of harm minimisation and include supply, demand and harm reduction measures. Many include provisions that ban or restrict the supply, possession and/or consumption of alcohol in relevant areas and some have also been used to place restrictions on local liquor outlets.
