​No more venues on violent list's top shelf

Issued: Friday, 25 November 2016

For the first time since the establishment of the violent venues list there will be no venues in the very restrictive level one category from 1 December.

The latest list also shows the number of violent incidents at listed venues has decreased by 38 per cent to 112 - the lowest number since the scheme’s inception.

This represents a 91 per cent decrease from the 1,270 incidents in 2008.

Minister for Justice Troy Grant said that the latest violent venues list shows that venues are heeding the message that running a violent venue is not just bad for the public, but bad for business.

“The number of violent incidents are trending down and people can be confident that they will be able to enjoy safe nights out this summer,” Mr Grant said. 

“This government has taken strong action and worked with the industry to achieve these results."

“Our focus remains on targeted approaches that allocate resources where they are needed rather than blanket one-size-fits-all methods.”

The list is updated twice a year to reflect the number of alcohol-related violent incidents at venues over a 12-month period. Venues that record 12 or more make the list and are subject to strict conditions.

There are eight venues on the latest list, down from 12 in June, with seven venues being removed altogether. A full list of violent venues and a fact sheet are attached.
