Horowhenua District Council is reviewing the current Alcohol (Liquor) Bylaw 2015 and is seeking the community’s feedback on the proposed Alcohol Control Bylaw.
Drinking alcohol in public places can lead to increased crime and safety concerns, including noise, litter, graffiti, public urination, vandalism, theft, intimidation, violence or reckless driving.
Council can use an Alcohol Bylaw to establish alcohol bans, which assist Council and local Police to enhance the safety and enjoyment of public places and reduce alcohol-related offences.
We’re proposing to adopt the new Alcohol Control Bylaw which keeps most of the current Alcohol Bylaw 2015 but includes the following proposed changes:
Let’s Kōrero Horowhenua
Council’s Chief Executive Monique Davidson says, “We invite the community to use our new online community engagement platform, ‘Let’s Kōrero Horowhenua.’ Delivering outcomes that ensure a thriving community and designing the future of our district relies on Council listening to and working in partnership with our community. Help us shape the future of Horowhenua.”
Submissions on the proposed bylaw close at 5pm on Friday 22 July 2022.
