The Whanganui District Council is currently publicly consulting on a Draft Local Alcohol Policy that aims to reduce alcohol-related harm in the Whanganui District.
The Draft Local Alcohol Policy proposes the following:
- a district-wide limit on the number of off-licensed premises (with the exclusion of supermarkets and grocery stores)
- rules about the proximity of off-licensed premises to sensitive sites
- a ‘one-way’ door restriction in effect from one hour prior to license closing hours for all taverns, bars, pubs, and night-clubs
- maximum trading hours for licensed premises
You can help make this a policy that works for everyone by making a submission.

Public consultation closes 4.00pm on Monday 15 May 2017
