Local Impact Assessments (LIA)

A local impact assessment (LIA) is usually required for hotels or registered clubs who wish to increase the number of gaming machines in their venue - which is called a gaming machine threshold - or when they change their physical location.

The GMT is a number which limits how many gaming machine entitlements (GMEs) – and, for hotels, poker machine permits (PMPs) – that a club or hotel licence can hold. A venue must have a GME, or PMP, for each gaming machine they operate. A hotel's GMT cannot exceed 30.

The LIA public register lists clubs and hotels who have lodged an application to increase their GMT.
