Liquor Licensing Policy

This page contains the Whangarei District Licensing Agency Liquor Licensing Policy.

Updated: 14/04/2014 8:16 a.m.


Council works along side the Police, Fire Service and Northland Health on strategies to minimise the harm caused by alcohol abuse. The policy has been developed and adopted through a special consultative process to allow all people in the community to have a say on how alcohol is sold in the district. The policy provides for important community issues such as licensing hours and how liquor licensing enforcement will be undertaken.

The policy defines the parameters which guide liquor licensing within the district and specifies how the District Licensing Agency will carry out its statutory functions. It was adopted in August 2010.
