Draft Local Alcohol Policy

Council is considering whether it should adopt a Local Alcohol Policy (LAP), and if it adopts a Local Alcohol Policy what should be included in it.

Reason for the proposal

Council is considering whether it should adopt a Local Alcohol Policy (LAP), and if it adopts a Local Alcohol Policy what should be included in it. Council considers that this is a matter for local communities to decide. There is 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.

Under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 Council can adopt a LAP. This policy is applicable to licences under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 in the district. Under legislation Council has to follow the below process to adopt a Local Alcohol Policy.
