Nearly 4000 liquor licences operate over Auckland, including about 2500 onlicences and more than 1000 off-licences. The Local Alcohol Policy proposes:
Auckland Council would gain greater control over issuing licences
It would be harder to establish a new licence, both off-licences and higher risk onlicences in broad area A and priority locations
Broad area B would have stricter rules for neighbourhood centres
Initiatives would be rolled out to move premises to larger centres
Club licences would be extended between 9am and 1am
