“For almost five years Woolworths has relentlessly fought to build what would be one of Australia’s largest liquor stores, an 1800 square meter Dan Murphy’s, in the middle of three dry communities in Darwin.

Woolworths has pursued this store in the face of community opposition and concern, in the full knowledge that the Northern Territory (NT) already has the highest levels of alcohol harm in the country, and despite being aware that the proposed development threatens to undermine the successful alcohol policies that the NT Government introduced to reduce community harm.

Woolworths knows there is strong community objection to its proposed Dan Murphy’s development.”
