Latest news from Cr Macdonald


As a member of the Maroondah Community Safety Committee I am pleased to see the progress of the South East Melbourne Councils Alcohol Density Project.

Maroondah has joined forces with other Councils to lobby the State Government to amend the Planning Scheme to provide stronger controls over the location of new packaged liquor outlets.

If successful, this would mean councils would have greater power when assessing applications for new liquor licences and the ability to reject applications that may have a negative social and wellbeing impact on the community.

We are strong supporters for these changes, as unfortunately Maroondah experiences significantly high rates of alcohol related harm.

The Project lodged an application with the Planning Minister to seek an Amendment to the Planning Scheme in May. I look forward to sharing the outcome with you in the coming months.
