Local Alcohol Policy
Local authorities have the ability to create Local Alcohol Policies (LAPs) under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2021. Council examined alcohol licencing, control and harm in Clutha in early 2021 in partnership with the New Zealand Police, the Medical Officer for Health (MoH), the District Licencing Committee (DLC) and our licencing staff.
A research paper was produced which collated these investigations. Overall it was found that the alcohol licensing system was functioning well in Clutha and that the community, licensees, Council staff, the DLC, the Police and the MoH were addressing the relatively small amount of local issues collectively as they arose.
At its meeting on 9 June 2021 the Regulatory and Policy Committee considered the findings of the Local Alcohol Policy Research Paper and voted to not create a LAP for the Clutha District at this time.
