Submissions invited on Alcohol Policy document

Submissions invited on Alcohol Policy document

The Christchurch City Council is developing a draft alcohol policy aimed at reducing alcohol related problems in our community.

To do this fairly and effectively, it wants to hear what people think about the issues raised in a discussion document available from Christchurch City Libraries, Council service centres and on the website www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay.

The document is about taking a serious stance on reducing alcohol abuse. It also recognises the city’s significant hospitality industry, which makes a substantial economic contribution to the city.

In developing a more holistic approach to liquor policy matters, the Council is looking at the issues in relation to five areas – use of legislation, use of liquor bans and bylaws; building and strengthening relationships; use of education; and advertising and sponsorship on Council property.

The Council has specific functions and legal responsibilities in regard to the Sale of Liquor Act, the City Plan and the Resource Management Act. It also has a role in promoting the social, economic, environmental and cultural well being of the community: a function required of it under the Local Government Act 2002.

Comments or submissions on the document must be with the Council by 14 July 2003. These can be made on the Have Your Say website www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay or by writing to Klaus Prusas, Team Leader Environmental Effects, Christchurch City Council, P.O.Box 237, Christchurch.
