Reviewing our Alcohol Control Bylaw

Thanks for having your say! Consultation has now finished. We'll be in touch with an adopted plan in August.

Welcome to the review of our Alcohol Control Bylaw, thanks for coming!

We’re inviting you to give feedback on our Draft Alcohol Control Bylaw.

This review was prompted by the request for an alcohol ban in Te Puke's town centre in late 2015. In reviewing our bylaw we needed to both determine whether an alcohol ban is needed in Te Puke, and assess whether the current bans in Waihi Beach and Katikati should remain.

In Jan/Feb this year we sought your feedback. This included the key question: should we introduce an alcohol ban in Te Puke?

Based on your comments and police crime statistics, we’re proposing to impose an alcohol ban in Te Puke, and keep the current bans in Katikati and Waihi Beach.

Do you agree with our proposals? Formal consultation is open until 13 May, 2016.

Here you can view the proposed ban areas, read the draft bylaw and statement of proposal (key changes) and have your say by filling in a feedback form below.

    • Police using existing legislation to fine people who behave in a disorderly or threatening manner, use indecent or obscene words, fight in a public place, obstruct a public way, indecently expose themselves, damage property or vegetation, or excrete in a public place. They can also take an intoxicated person home or detain them until they cease to be intoxicated

    • Council increasing its monitoring for compliance of licensed premises

    • Council restricting the number of premises that can sell alcohol and/or where they are located
