Maroondah Liquor Accord

In October 2013 Council adopted an Alcohol Management Framework (AMF).

The purpose of the AMF is to create a ‘best practice’ framework that can be used to guide and inform Council’s statutory and strategic planning processes, with a particular emphasis on guiding the projected growth of licensed premises in Maroondah’s Activity Centres.  It will also assist with developing a safe urban night time environment that encourages a vibrant and safe night time economy. 

The framework will also inform the development of a Local Planning Policy Framework (LPPF) which will be embedded in the Maroondah Planning Scheme.

A key recommendation from the AMF is the establishment of a Maroondah Liquor Accord.  Accords are a joint initiative between licensees, Victoria Police, Council and the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation. 

Liquor Accords can contribute to safer communities, by working in collaboration to manage the environment in and around licensed businesses to improve venue/club management, amenity and patron safety.  Benefits of Accords include:

  • Keep up-to-date with changes to liquor laws
  • Network with colleagues and other stakeholders
  • Improve relationships between venues, Council and Police
  • Undertake joint initiatives
  • Share information and knowledge
