Feedback wanted – draft Control of Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw 2018

Wednesday 19 September 2018

We’ve reviewed the Control of Alcohol in Public Places bylaw and are seeking public submissions on the new draft bylaw.

The goal of the bylaw is unchanged - to reduce incidences of alcohol-related crime and disorder in our District to benefit both residents and visitors.

The draft bylaw also continues the police powers to enforce the alcohol ban in defined public places.

The times and locations the consumption or carrying of alcohol is prohibited remain unchanged.

Exemption provisions in the expiring bylaw will also be carried over into the draft bylaw.

Changes that reference or reflect the legislative changes brought in by the Local Government (Alcohol Reform) Amendment Act 2012 are now included in the draft bylaw.

A copy of the Statement of Proposal, including a full copy of the draft replacement bylaw, is available at or during normal office hours at any library or service centre.
