The impacts of packaged
liquor outlets and alcohol-related harm

 

The South East Melbourne (SEM) Group of Councils, which consists of the Cities of Casey, Greater Dandenong, Kingston and Frankston along with the Shires of Mornington Peninsula, Bass Coast and Cardinia would like to thank everyone who provided a response to the survey.

The SEM Councils are now reviewing the results of the survey in combination with other research that is taking place with the various project partners. The survey results will help Councils to consider policies which can better manage the number and type of packaged liquor outlets that are approved in various community areas.

The SEM project will continue during 2015-16 where numerous data sets, including those from Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria and the survey results will be used to map trends in local communities to consider the correlations between the numbers of packaged liquor outlets and any local increases in alcohol related harm.

If you would like any further information on the regional project please contact the SEM Council Alliance Project Manager, Gavin Wilson on 9705 5200.

'Fight for Fairer Funding' Community Meeting Casey and Cardinia residents were invited to a community meeting on Monday 7 July at the City of Casey Civic Centre to voice their priorities and concerns in the lead up to this year’s state election.

The meeting is part of a wider advocacy campaign from 10 Victorian Interface Councils advocating to the State Government and State Opposition.

The issues reflected upon included: 

  • Public transport – buses and train timetables to be more closely aligned.
  • Road access – cross municipality access.
  • Community infrastructure – basic community infrastructure that is on par with other part of Melbourne.
  • Fragile families – families in interface areas have poorer social outcomes and are more vulnerable to family crisis.
  • Health services – people living in the interface areas experience higher incidences of physical and mental health issues
  • Youth services – services that support youth education, employment and mental health.
  • Support for the aged population – services that address the isolation associated with aging and simplify access to proper health services.
  • Education – appropriate number of schools to avoid overcrowding.
  • Green wedges – resources to ensure the protection of one of Melbourne’s greatest assets.
