Reducing harm from gambling policy

Consultation has concluded

Council recognises that whilst gambling is a legal activity, problem gambling causes social and economic harms to individuals, families and communities making it a significant public health issue. The Council is therefore committed to prevent and reduce the harm and minimise the negative impacts of gambling to the City of Maribyrnong community.

Council's framework for action will focus on advocacy, research, engagement and legislation and be delivered in partnership with our community, local stakeholders and gambling venue operators.
