Successful appeal to VCAT against the VCGLR’s earlier refusal of an application for additional gaming machines

BSP Lawyers recently acted for Bakers Arms Hotel Pty Ltd in a successful appeal to VCAT against the VCGLR’s earlier refusal of an application for additional gaming machines at the Braybrook Hotel. This decision highlights how important it is for applicants to consider problem gambling mitigation measures, particularly when making applications for additional gaming machines in disadvantaged socio-economic areas. The decision also highlights the complex issues that must be addressed under the ‘no net detriment’ test, prior to lodging an application.
