Find my Local Impact Assessment Band

The Local Impact Assessment (LIA) scheme classifies all areas within NSW based on the risk of introducing additional gaming machines into that area.

The location of your venue is classified in a risk ranking system defined by a geographical boundary called SA2, established by Australian Bureau of Statistics. This method determines the type of LIA you need to complete.

Provide feedback

We take care in ensuring the accuracy of data and that information is regularly updated. As some of this information in the map is obtained from sources outside of L&GNSW, its accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

We will continue to improve and develop the map based on your feedback, and as new data becomes available.

Data sources

The following data was sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website:

  • Local Government Area (LGA) 2016
  • Suburb areas (2016)
  • Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) (2011) boundary maps
  • Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) scores (2011)
  • SA2 area population statistics (2011) data

The following data was sourced from L&GNSW and will be updated regularly:

  • Licence Name, Licence Number, Licence Type
  • Venue Address, LGA, Region
  • (Gaming machine) Entitlements, (Poker machine) Permits and Total Authorised Limit
  • Unfulfilled Quota and Gaming machine threshold

Note: All SA2 data is static and reflects the situation when the classification band for that area was determined – 9 November 2017. This will remain until SA2 areas are re-classified which is expected in 2019.

Over time there may be some disparity between this data and the data relating to individual gaming venues caused by the venue’s business changes.
