Preventing Alcohol Harms


Regional Alcohol Density Project

The Regional Alcohol Density Project is a collaboration involving eight south-east Melbourne Councils including:

  • Casey
  • Cardinia
  • Greater Dandenong
  • Knox
  • Kingston
  • Frankston
  • Mornington Peninsula, and
  • Maroondah.

The Project involves working towards a group Councils amendment to their respective planning schemes that will strengthen the decision making capabilities of Council through the assessment of planning applications for packaged liquor outlets.

The group planning scheme amendment will build on previous research linking alcohol-related harm to packaged liquor outlets. The overall goal is to assist Councils to reduce violence in their community.
