Christchurch City Liquor Control Bylaw

Wednesday 28 April 2004

Comment called for on Christchurch City Liquor Control Bylaw

Public consultation on the Christchurch City Liquor Control Bylaw 2004 closes at the end of next week.

The new bylaw is designed to curb disorder and prevent crime linked to people drinking alcohol in public.

If it is introduced the proposed Christchurch City Liquor Control Bylaw 2004 would prohibit people from drinking in the following public places during specified times:

-The central city within the four avenues
-Part of Sumner
-Some areas south of Moorhouse Ave
-Cathedral Square and Spencer Park on New Year’s Eve
-Other public places for special events, agreed to at a Council meeting.

This would continue the current central city ban but would extend the hours to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Two new bans would also be introduced - a 24/7 South Christchurch ban and a Thursday night until Monday morning Sumner Esplanade ban.

To see the bylaw, maps and more information, visit the website www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay Civic Offices, Council Service Centres or a Christchurch City Library.

Submissions may be made online or by writing to the Council Secretary, Christchurch City Council, P.O.Box 237, Christchurch. Submitters can also request to be heard in person by the Council’s Regulatory and Consents Committee. Submissions close Friday 7 May.
