Media invited to launch of new liquor bans

All media are invited to visit one of Christchurch’s new liquor ban areas at 4pm, Wednesday 7 July.

Christchurch City Councillor Sue Wells and Christchurch Police District Commander Sandra Manderson will be in Colombo St, opposite Spotlight Plaza(cnr Elgin and Colombo Sts) to talk about why drinking in public is now prohibited in this part of South Christchurch and other areas in the city.

Since last Thursday, Christchurch’s downtown public drinking ban has been extended to the foot of the Port Hills and is now in force at all times rather than just on weekends.

Under the new Christchurch City Liquor Control Bylaw, drinking in public is also now banned on and near the Sumner Esplanade from 7pm, Thursday until 7pm Sunday and at Spencer Park on New Year’s Eve.

Christchurch City Council’s aim in introducing the bylaw was to assist in reducing crime related to drinking in public places and to improve perceptions of public safety.

While it is hoped that compliance will be mostly achieved by education, Christchurch Police will enforce the bylaw.
