Northern Territory Aboriginal communities still waiting to have a say on alcohol management

Date posted: 2 April 2015

Federal Government plans to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Northern Territory a say in the management of alcohol in their communities have stalled.

In 2009, the then Federal Labor Government proposed the idea of allowing communities to develop their own alcohol management plans.

It was an attempt to give Aboriginal communities more of a say, after the Federal Intervention in the Northern Territory in 2007 imposed blanket alcohol bans on Aboriginal land.

But six years on, only one Aboriginal community in the Northern Territory has had its plan approved.
