Queenstown Lakes District Council has released results of its recent booze survey – and a statement says the responses will be key to deciding whether to pursue a local alcohol policy.
The council carried out the informal survey last month to gather community views about drinking habits, the availability of alcohol and its perceived impact on the Queenstown Lakes District.
The opinions expressed in it will be considered by council, along with information from the police and the Medical Officer of Health, when deciding whether to develop a Local Alcohol Policy under new liquor laws.
If the council decides to develop a Local Alcohol Policy, the council will consult the community as well as stakeholders over what should be included.
The survey attracted 966 responses.
