Gapview knocked back a second time on extended hours for Masters Games grog trade

Licensing Commission cites Briscoe Inquest findings on excessive alcohol consumption in Alice Springs

 

Gapview Hotel has been knocked back for a second time on a request to  vary its take-away trading hours during the Masters Games. The reasons for decision cite the Coroner's findings in the Briscoe Inquest that “a long term solution to excessive alcohol consumption in Alice Springs requires greater cooperation amongst stakeholders (including outlets that sell alcohol)”.

In another recent decision the Commission dismissed the objection of a Department of Health officer to an application to vary the licence of the Wuduluk Progress Aboriginal Corporation to sell alcohol at the Beswick Community Store. This decision has relevance to the issues of take-away versus on-premise drinking and to the idea of 'wet canteens' on Aboriginal communities. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
