Alcohol Control Bylaw

This bylaw's purpose is to reduce alcohol-related harm through prohibition and control of alcohol in public places

Drinking alcohol in public places is banned on all beaches and public land within 300 metres of the coast (including Whangārei Harbour) and Whangārei’s central business district.

There are also bans in place for six suburbs within the urban boundaries of our District as well as six coastal villages. 

Maps of where liquor bans are in force can be found within the Alcohol Control Areas document.
