Additional restrictions on the availability of alcohol in Alice Springs were introdcued on a trial basis in April 2003. An telephone-based evaluation of the restrictions was undertaken by the NT Department of Health. The use of the phone survey exclude participation by Aboriginal residents of Alice's 18 'town camps'. To address this, Tangentyre Council - major service delivery agency for the camps - initiated a survey of the atttitudes of town camp residents to the restrictions. This was conducted as research capacity building project in which NDRI staff provided training to Tangentyere Council staff. A report on the survey found that the majority of people in the camps were in favour of continuing or strengthening the restrictions. This report was presented to the Licensing Commission and contributed to its decision to continue the restrictions (albeit in modified form).
