Local Liquor Accords

A Local Liquor Accord (LLA) is a voluntary agreement on the management or conduct of local businesses that supply alcohol.

The agreement may specify conditions around the supply of liquor, trading hours, security or other related matters.

The purpose of an LLA is to prevent or reduce alcohol-related violence and anti-social behaviour in our community.

Members and stakeholders of an LLA commit voluntarily to the agreement.

Establishing an agreement

As a local liquor licence holder, you can work together with other local licensees and stakeholders to establish an LLA.

Stakeholders may include the Director of Liquor Licensing, police, local government council, industry organisations and community groups or organisations.

An LLA may specify conditions such as:

  • additional restrictions on selling (take-away) alcohol within permitted trading hours
  • restrictions on the public's access to licensed premises
  • prohibition or restriction on the use of glass containers
  • maintaining an incident register
  • installation and operation of closed-circuit television or other security devices
  • security staffing
  • selling price of alcohol

Agreements need to be in writing and approved by the Director of Liquor Licensing.
