Liquor Ban Areas

There are areas in Central Hawkes Bay which have Liquor Bans applied.

Liquor Ban Areas

It is prohibited to consume or have possession of alcohol in public areas in any of the Liquor Ban areas. Members of the public are still able to transport or carry containers of alcohol through the area (for example from a bottle store to their car) but not allowed to drink, hold or store liquor in any liquor ban area.

The Liquor Control bylaw is enforced by the police who have authority to search, detain and request details.

The liquor bans have effect at all times (24 hrs a day) in the ‘ban’ areas..

It is important to note that the bans do not apply to private property within the ‘ban” areas at any time. They only apply in a public place.

Should you have any questions with regard to the bylaw please contact Council
