The purpose of the Alcohol Management Policy is to enhance safety, amenity, health and wellbeing in the Mornington Peninsula Shire through a harm minimisation approach to the management of alcohol.   The policy aims to provide a clear and transparent approach to alcohol management and guide decision making surrounding alcohol impacts and minimise alcohol-related harm for individuals, families and the wider community.

The Policy applies to all types of Council decision-making on liquor matters, including statutory planning decisions on planning permits concerning land use for:

  • alcohol retail outlets;
  • nightclubs, bars and restaurants; and
  • sporting, recreational and community facilities or public spaces that are Council owned or managed.  

This Policy is drawn from duties, obligations and powers under the following Acts:

  • Local Government Act 1989 
  • Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008
  • Planning and Environment Act 1987
  • Liquor Control Reform Act 1998
