Alcohol Control Bylaw 2014
The Alcohol Control Bylaw aims to reduce alcohol-related harm by controlling the consumption and possession of alcohol in public places.

There are also new recurring temporary alcohol bans for major events at:
- Eden Park
- Rarotonga/Mt Smart Stadium

The changes take effect from 1 June 2021.

What the Alcohol Control Bylaw does
The bylaw establishes the structure to make alcohol bans.
It also sets out recurring temporary event alcohol bans for major events at certain regional venues.
Alcohol bans prohibit drinking and possessing alcohol in public places during particular times.
The bylaw includes criteria to help decide whether to adopt an alcohol ban, based on the requirements of the Local Government Act 2002.
Who has authority to make alcohol bans
Local boards have the delegated authority to make decisions about local alcohol bans.
Alcohol bans in areas of regional significance are made by the Governing Body of Auckland Council.
All alcohol bans are enforced by the police.
For more information about current alcohol bans, including area maps, see Alcohol bans and licencing trusts.
