Regular updates and points of interest are posted on the News page of this website.

The Harbourside Liquor Accord is a voluntary, industry-based, collaborative partnership working in the local community to implement practical solutions to liquor-related problems. The accord encompasses licensed premises from The Spit at Mosman, through Cremorne, Neutral Bay, Cammeray, North Sydney, Kirribilli, Milsons Point, McMahons Point, Waverton, Wollstonecraft, Crows Nest, St Leonards, Artarmon, Willoughby, Chatswood and Lane Cove.

LOCAL IDEAS. REAL SOLUTIONS

Membership of the Accord is voluntary and includes local liquor licensees, the Harbourside Local Area Command of the NSW Police, North Sydney Council, Mosman Municipal Council, Willoughy Council, Liquor and Gaming NSW, the Northern Sydney Local Health District, RMS and other community organisations.

The Harbourside Liquor Accord (HLA) provides a strong foundation to enhance and promote communication amongst all stakeholders in the community to proactively address ways to improve the operation of licensed venues so that venues and precincts are safe and enjoyable environments for both residents and visitors.

HLA brings together a collective wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise to identify and implement best practice and introduce initiatives which are specifically tailored to impact issues affecting member premises and the local community.

The objects of the HLA are to:

  • reduce alcohol related harm/crime
  • promote responsible behaviour amongst patrons of licensed premises
  • responsible service of alcohol
  • improve safety and security
  • improve the local amenity
  • co-operate with the police and the community to improve local outcomes

LOCAL SOLUTIONS: White Ribbon Day: Accord Supports Domestic Violence Victims

Taking their own stand against domestic violence, members of Harbourside Liquor Accord unanimously voted to donate $1,000 to North Shore-based Mary’s House to provide gifts and new school year requirements for the children staying at the shelter over the festive season. 

“Our members strongly support the work of Mary’s House and are keen to bring some fun to the families affected by domestic violence in our local area,” Peter Calligeros, President, Harbourside Liquor Accord said.

Peter said the accord works closely with North Shore Local Area Command to implement a range of strategies to combat alcohol-related issues and this is a small, yet practical way in which the members can directly assist victims.

Mary’s House is a shelter in the North Shore of Sydney, operated by the North Shore Women’s Benevolent Association, supporting women and their children who are escaping domestic violence.

In accepting the surprise donation, Mary’s House Executive Officer, Maggy Farago, said “Mary’s House has been a community initiative from the beginning and we are very appreciative of the community continuing to support us. We thank the Harbourside Liquor Accord for being an active part of this community. Domestic Violence is a major issue in our society, affecting one in four women, and we are proud to be offering one solution to this.”

 

On Thursday 22 November, members of the Harbourside Liquor Accord Committee joined representatives from North Sydney Council in a visit the Mary’s House offices to discuss the donation and the issue of domestic violence on the north shore.
