Pilbara: Community, council reject alcohol restrictions

Written on the 23 March 2017

City of Karratha councillors have decided not to support implementing new daily takeaway alcohol restrictions after the majority of respondents to a community survey voted against the changes.

The West Pilbara Liquor Accord is considering introducing in the Pilbara identification-scanning liquor restrictions which would limit alcohol purchases to one carton of full-strength beer and either three bottles of wine or one bottle of spirits per person per day.

However the City's survey results, considered at a council meeting last night, showed public opinion was mainly against those restrictions.

Out of 968 respondents, about 580 or 60 per cent were against them, with about half commenting the measures did not sufficiently target problem drinkers.

36 per cent were in support and four per cent were undecided.
