This data has been compiled by the City of Greater Dandenong, a leadership council of the Alliance for Gambling Reform, to help interested parties obtain information about the impact of gambling upon their local areas.

If an application for poker machines has arisen in your local area, reviewing the previous VCGLR decisions on gaming applications will be helpful in preparing to present a rebuttal case to Council and the VCGLR if necessary. Including specific data of your local area and the potential harm caused by additional pokies will be crucial to making your case, as well as linking to the listed relevant research.
