We received more than 97 industry surveys and 359 community/patron perspective surveys as part of the review of the Late Night Code, along with 18 written submissions. Data and representations made by Government agencies has also been invaluable in reviewing the effectiveness of the Late Night Code.
Consumer and Business Services prepared an outcome report that details the feedback received and the next steps.
The revised Late Night Code was subject to further targeted consultation until 1 September 2023, with changes proposed to come into effect from November.
The Liquor and Gambling Commissioner considered responses to the targeted consultation and determined the draft Late Night Code will be retained for commencement on 1 November 2023.
Slight amendments include the requirement for drink marshals only every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday between 2.01 am and 7.00 am while open for trade to make this more workable for the industry. Police will monitor this implementation, in case further changes are recommended.
