New online tool for liquor licence information
The NSW Government has launched a new online tool that will make it easier for people to search the latest liquor licence information alongside demographic, alcohol-related crime and health data for every suburb and Local Government Area in the State.
Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said LiveData is a game changer for governments, industry and the community.
“LiveData brings together multiple data categories from a range of government sources in one centralised, easy-to-use portal, giving everyone easy access to the latest data on liquor-related information in their local area,” Mr Dominello said.
“This will improve transparency around liquor licence applications and empower communities to respond to local challenges.”
Mr Dominello said the tool has the same data which the NSW Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority considers when it assesses applications for new liquor licences.
“This interactive tool gives stakeholders a bird’s-eye view of liquor licences so they can make more informed decisions,” Mr Dominello said.
“This will make it simpler and quicker for residents and other stakeholders to understand local alcohol-related trends if they wish to make a submission on a liquor licence application.
“The information will also help applicants develop a plan of management that provides a safe environment for patrons and addresses any concerns raised by the local community.”
LiveData is now available.
