Consultation time again!

    For those of you that missed the mailer that went out to our mailboxes from the CCC, it is reproduced below. This is different from our submissions to the Liquor Licensing Agency about Club 22. 
    You will recall that the temporary ban was extended in February (see earlier blog post). Now this is our chance to make this permanent. Details are below, but for those of us with internet access the easiest way is simply to click on the green button here: HAVE YOUR SAY. So what are you waiting for - make your submission!

Christchurch City Council

Public consultation

on proposed

permanent alcohol

bans for Merivale

and Papanui

Christchurch City Council is proposing permanent bans on drinking in public places for Merivale and Papanui. Temporary bans currently in place will remain until 9 September 2012.

The bans apply from 6pm to 6am on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

The temporary bans appear to have been effective and it is going to be some time before the current patterns of drinking and entertainment areas change – hence the proposal for permanent bans.

The Council is very interested in hearing from people as to whether the temporary alcohol bans have been useful or not, and whether they think the proposed bans cover the right locations, days and times.

Written submissions on the amendment to the Alcohol Restrictions in Public Places Bylaw can be made between 4 May to 6 June 2012.

Public submissions on the Merivale and Papanui bylaw proposals have to be made in writing and can be lodged between 4 May and 5 June 2012 through the Council's Have Your Say webpage by emailing or by posting to:

    Freepost 178
    Submissions on proposed Merivale and Papanui Alcohol Bans
    Christchurch City Council
    PO Box 73013
    Christchurch 8154

A full copy of the report to Council on these matters is available on the Council's website at and can be accessed at all open Council Service Centres, Council Libraries and on the Council's website during the consultation period.
