Review of Alcohol Bans, July - October 2015
06 Feb 2017
GETBA is disappointed that the Howick Local Board has not listened to GETBA and 97 submitters and has allowed the alcohol bans in the East Tamaki industrial precinct to lapse on all affected streets (see map). GETBA appeared at the Howick Local Board Hearing on 6 August speaking to an additional Hearings Statement and an email from the NZ Police Counties Manukau East Area Commander. The lack of consistency in decision making is of concern with other similar industrial areas including Rosebank in Auckland and Te Rapa in Hamilton retaining the alcohol bans to protect those areas.
