After almost four years of negotiation and dispute, the Local Alcohol Policy is up for approval at tomorrow’s district council meeting. The policy would come into effect on April 24, except for provisions on trading hours for licensed premises which would come into effect on July 31. Taverns will be forced to close at 2am - later than the 1am time which had been proposed in an earlier version of the policy but earlier than the 3am time that several are currently allowed to stay open until. New standalone bottle stores would only be allowed to locate in business zones or neighbourhood and local centres identified in the District Plan. • Turn to page 4
