LIQUOR & GAMING AUTHORITY TO VISIT ALBURY

Department of Enterprise, Investment and Trade < 1 mins read

The NSW Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA) will visit the Albury region between 18 and 20 July to gain better insights into regional issues as part of its Regional Engagement Strategy.

 

ILGA Chairperson Caroline Lamb said regional visits are important to ensure the Authority is responsive to the unique needs of each community it serves.

 

“This visit is in line with ILGA’s goal of engaging with different communities and stakeholders to ensure its regulatory decision making is well-informed and relevant,” Ms Lamb said.

 

Board members and representatives of the Authority will meet with various key regional organisations in the Albury region with scheduled meetings including:

 

  • Albury Council
  • Albury Liquor Accords
  • NSW Police
  • ClubsNSW
  • Australian Hotels Association NSW
  • Riverina Murray Regional Alliance and Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service (awaiting full confirmation)
  • Murrumbidgee and Southern NSW Local Health Districts
  • Uniting Victas - GambleAware Murrumbidgee

 

Ms Lamb said the Authority looks forward to working closely with the Albury community and building strong relationships that will help ILGA to make a positive impact in the region.

 

“By listening to locals’ concerns, we can be confident that our future decisions are fair, balanced and well-suited to the needs of the people in the area,” Ms Lamb said.

 

“We will be meeting with a range of groups over a two-day period to understand what matters to the Albury community when it comes to the impacts of liquor and gaming on crime, health and local industry, including the effect of the Albury – Wodonga border, which has differing liquor and gaming laws on either side.

“These visits will give us firsthand accounts to support the data and help us make decisions in the public interest.”

Portable long service leave rewarding and retaining 240,000 NSW community workers

The passage of portable long service leave for 240,000 community and disability sector workers in NSW is a major victory that will help keep them in the sector for longer and recognise their service and dedication to NSW communities. The new law, passed by the NSW Parliament today, allows workers to accrue long service leave entitlements that carry with them between employers, providing greater security and incentive to remain in this critical field. "This is a momentous day for the dedicated community and disability sector workforce in NSW," said Angus McFarland, Secretary, Australian Services Union NSW & ACT. "For too…
