Safe night out laws – update

9 October 2014

More elements of the Safe Night Out legislative regime came into operation on 26 September 2014 reinforcing the Queensland Government's policy objectives to better control alcohol-related offences in the State's entertainment hotspots.

The Safe Night Out Legislation Amendment Regulation (No. 1) 2014 (Qld) outlines the newly defined entertainment "precincts" in addition to the establishment of local board associations to oversee these areas. Seven new boards have been incorporated and include the Safe Night Fortitude Valley Precinct Inc, Safe Night Inner West Precinct Inc. and Safe Night Sunshine Coast Precinct Inc. as well as other regional centres. Responsible practices by licensees and the correct operation of CCTV equipment are also addressed.

A number of operational requirements relating to the Liquor Act 1992 (Qld) also came into force following the proclamation of certain provisions of the Safe Night Out Legislation Amendment Act 2014 (Qld).
