We’re reviewing our Local Alcohol Policy and want to know if it is meeting the needs of our community.
Our Local Alcohol Policy provides direction on the sale and supply of alcohol in our district and includes things like maximum trading hours, where new licences cannot be issued when close to things like schools, daycares, etc.
It’s an important policy that helps prevent further alcohol related harm in our district. The data that has been made available to us by key central government agencies so far, suggests our current Policy has been working well to reduce harm from alcohol in our communities.
However we need to check in with our wider community to see if that the Policy is meeting your needs too.
Proposed changes to the existing policy include:
Other changes are purely administrative and create clarity but do not alter the intent of any of the existing clauses.
You can read more about our proposals in the documents below.
Our Statement of Proposal, including the adoption report, outlines our proposals in more detail (Statement of Proposal 3150680 and adoption report 3150681) and you can view the entire draft policy (3150679
Written feedback will be accepted from Tuesday, 19 April 2022 to 4pm Friday 20 May 2022.
