• Update

    The implementation of the Alcohol Free Zone is now completed.

    Following engagement with local police, businesses, community and local Liquor Accord’s, we obtained the required approvals for the implementation.

    The successful roll out of the signage has seen the Alcohol Free Zones be implemented within all of the approved areas.

    With works being conducted on the Waitara train station, this has delayed the installation of the signage within this area, it will be implemented once works are completed.
