 In 2014, the Newman Government removed the moratorium on late night trading when it introduced its Safe Night Out Strategy. This action saw a flurry of applications with more than 120 new approvals for late night trading hours approved in the 12 months to September 2015. These approvals have resulted in a significant increase in the number of late night trading hours each night as new venues trade after midnight and existing late night venues extend their trading hours. Since late night trading hours are associated with increased levels of harm, it is important to minimise the risk of harm while the framework is being developed.
