• Stronger connections between partners
• Impact on liquor licence applications (e.g. licence refused, conditions put in place, etc.)
• Impact on liquor outlet density
• Reduction in alcohol harms.
Tools to measure success • Document analysis (e.g. meeting minutes, submissions from community members and partners, etc.)
