Under the Psychoactive Substances Act 2013 Council can adopt a Local Approved Products Policy (LAPP). This policy is applicable to premises selling approved products under the Psychoactive Substances Act 2013 in the district. Under legislation Council must use the special consultative procedure to develop the LAPP.
Council is considering whether it should adopt a Local Approved Products Policy, and if they adopt a Local Approved Products Policy what should be included in the policy. It considers that this is a matter for local communities to decide, there is also a legislative requirement for the special consultative procedure to be used. Council is therefore seeking feedback from its communities on whether they believe Council should adopt this policy and the provisions that should be in this policy.
