Local Alcohol Policy


The adoption of a Local Alcohol Policy by the Wairoa District Council will give communities greater control over the location and licensing conditions of liquor outlets.

The development of the policy is based around setting licensing standards that are relevant to the needs of the community.

The policy will also provide the District Licensing Committee with guidance that helps ensure licensing decisions balance economic and social outcomes.

A public consultation period was run throughout the month of August with six submissions received with three submitters speaking at a hearing.

Last month Council resolved to adopt the proposed Local Alcohol Policy with amendments based on the feedback from submissions.

At Tuesday’s Council meeting the provisional policy was adopted and will be further advertised with a month-long appeal period, for those who made submissions to the policy, closing on November 23.
