Pub crawl busi­nesses will have to be per­mit­ted from next month.

Nine of Queen­stown’s 10 coun­cil­lors voted in favour of im­pos­ing the reg­u­la­tion. Only coun­cil­lor Si­mon Stamers-Smith voted against changes to the Ac­tiv­i­ties in Pub­lic Places by­law, for­mally the nui­sance by­law.

Reg­u­la­tory man­ager Lee Web­ster urged coun­cil­lors to ac­cept the rec­om­men­da­tion, while bar crawl sup­port­ers spoke against it. Changes to the by­law take ef­fect from Novem­ber 30 with a re­view sched­uled in 12 months.
