- Hamilton City Council has opted to defer deliberations and decision-making on their draft Local Alcohol Policy (LAP) following receiving and hearing submissions on the draft policy last month.
- 20 Councils across New Zealand are currently facing appeals on their LAPs and it is likely Hamilton City Council would face the same outcome if they were to approve their LAP, which is in the draft stage.
- Two appeals have been scheduled for late July and early August. Council will await the outcomes of these two appeals before proceeding with the LAP.

Consultation on the Draft Hamilton City Council Local Alcohol Policy has now closed.
A total of 93 submissions were received to the draft policy with 41 people request to speak at the Council hearings in support of their written submissions.
The document below provides a list of submitters (submission number, name, and organisation), with the submissions documents.
***Please be advised of two errors in the recently distributed Statement of Proposal and draft Policy:
- The Statement of Proposal states that ‘on-licence hours remain unchanged’ . It should read ‘on-licence hours remain unchanged for the central city area’. The maximum trading hours for on-licences outside of the central city area vary greatly and therefore setting standard maximum closing hours will result in a reduction of hours for some licensed premises operating outside of the central city.
Error in the draft Policy – outdoor dining
- Clause 5.1.1 (iii) currently states that ‘Any permitted outdoor dining area will not have trading hours that exceeds 9am to 10pm on any day as provided for within the Public Places Bylaw 2009 and the Public Places Policy.’ It should read ‘Any permitted outdoor dining area will not have trading hours that exceeds 9am to 1am on any day… ‘ This was a typo error.
