Control of Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw is approved

The Kāpiti Coast District Council adopted the Control of Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw 2018 last week, replacing the 2013 version.

Group Manager Regulatory Services Natasha Tod says there were no significant changes to the bylaw.

The goal of the bylaw is to promote a culture of responsible drinking, improve the community’s safety, and allow for the responsible enjoyment of public places. The bylaw also maintains the current alcohol-free zones.

“The only amendments proposed in the new bylaw are minor changes made to better align it with the Local Government Amendment (Alcohol Reform) Act 2012 (LGA).”

Several community members came to the Council meeting to speak about the need for signs that are more easily read and understood.

Ms Tod says the Council has taken this feedback onboard and will be looking at what steps it can take to improve signage in public places in the New Year.”

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
