Hassle free nights
THE Australian Hotels Association (NSW) (AHA) has welcomed the multi-faceted nature of the NSW Government initiative, Hassle Free Nights, designed to reduce anti-social behaviour in our main entertainment precincts.
Australian Hotels Association (NSW) chief executive officer Sally Fielke, says the initiative identifies that all stakeholders, including the NSW Police, local councils, government agencies and the patrons themselves, have a role to play.
“Hassle Free Nights focuses on locally tailored solutions and a co-operative approach between licensed premises and all stakeholders.
“This is what the AHA (NSW) has suggested all along,” Ms Fielke said.
The AHA (NSW) has always advocated that developing solutions at a local level is the most effective way to tackle anti-social behaviour in the community.
