The Eastern Suburbs Liquor Accord is focused on acting within the best interests of the community. The Accord works with Waverley Council, Woollahra Council 
and Licensing Police to proactively reduce any negative impacts on residential amenity within the Accord boundaries. By working with local residents, it is hoped that the Liquor Accord can continue to address any negative impacts of Licensed Venues within our Accord area. Through a proactive and team-based approach with other community stakeholders, the Accord is focused on maintaining an integral role in the commercial, residential and social appeal of the Eastern Suburbs.

The Accord actively promotes members to resolve residential disturbance complaints as expeditiously as possible. In instances when residential disturbance can be linked to a specific venue, residents may contact the venue in question and relay their complaint to management. It is the expectation of the Accord that member venues are proactive in addressing the complaints of our residents as soon as possible, with an expectation that Licensee/Management will make every effort to address your issues/disturbances. We would also ask that you contact so the Accord is aware of the problem and can monitor progress in addressing any complaint. 

The Eastern Suburbs Liquor Accord with Waverley and Woollahra Councils have an ongoing commitment to improve the relationships of our Member Venues and residents within our community. For a more detailed outline of the ways in which Residents can address complaints with local Licensed Premises, or for more information, please visit your local Council website for disturbance complaint information at:

Furthermore, if any aggrieved residents feel that the process or communication with the related venue has not adequately resolved their issues, then please feel free to contact, where your problem will be addressed promptly.
