A number of people and community groups have told us they would like to see alcohol ban areas established in Kilbirnie and Kelburn Park. These places were not proposed as alcohol ban areas in the recent review of the Council’s Alcohol Control Bylaw.
Alcohol Control Bylaw
However given the desire for these areas to be added to the bylaw, we would like to hear the wider community’s views on creating alcohol ban areas in Kilbirnie and Kelburn Park.
It is unlawful to consume or possess alcohol in alcohol ban areas, with exceptions for taking alcohol to or from places within the area.
During the consultation on the Alcohol Control Bylaw last year, many members of the public submitted in favour of extending the alcohol control area to include Kilbirnie and Kelburn. The Council has voted to consult with the community on the proposal of creating an Alcohol Ban Area in these suburbs.
The Council has engaged with the relevant stakeholders and communities in these areas and seeks your views on the proposal for the following areas:
- the Kilbirnie area, bordered by Mahora Street, Coutts Street, Childers Terrace, Evans Bay Parade (from Kemp Street) and Rongotai Road
- Kilbirnie Park and surrounding streets
- Kelburn Park
Boundaries of the proposed alcohol ban areas can be found in the Statement of Proposal document below.
Alternatively, the document is available from:
