Time to Comment on Alcohol Policy Document
26 June 2003
The public has until 14 July to comment on a discussion document that will
be used in drafting the Christchurch City Council’s proposed alcohol
The document is about taking a serious stance on reducing alcohol
abuse. It also recognises the city’s significant hospitality industry,
which makes a substantial economic contribution to the city.
In developing a more holistic approach to liquor policy matters,
the Council is looking at the issues in relation to five areas – use
of legislation, use of liquor bans and bylaws; building and strengthening
relationships; use of education; and advertising and sponsorship on Council
The document is available from Christchurch City Libraries, Council
service centres and on the website www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay.
Comments can be made on the Have Your Say website or by writing
to Klaus Prusas,
Team Leader Environmental Effects, Christchurch City Council,
P.O.Box 237, Christchurch.
