Proposed Alcohol Bylaw Open for Submissions

August 21, 2014 at 10:03 AM

Dear all,

The proposed alcohol control bylaw is now open for public consultation, public submissions opened on Friday 15th August and will close on the Monday 15th September.

The proposed bylaw will establish the structure to make, review, amend or revoke alcohol bans.  Alcohol bans prohibit the possession and consumption of alcohol in public places.  The bylaw has been designed to support a range of non-regulatory community-focused approaches that are being used across Auckland.

The proposal does not include the review of existing alcohol bans, decisions on these will be made once the bylaw has been adopted.


Help spread the word

We would really appreciate it if you could please encourage people to tell us what they think about the proposed alcohol control bylaw.

The first step is for people to complete a written submission outlining what they support and what they don’t, and there are a number of ways people can do this.  They can:

  • complete the online submission form at  
  • complete a hard copy submission form and either drop it in to us or return by freepost
  • provide their own written submission.

The written submission period will close at 4.00pm Monday 15 September 2014.
