Harm and disorder in public places is expected to be reduced with the introduction of new alcohol bans in the Wairoa subdivision of the Franklin Ward. The bans, from Whitford to Orere, will become effective at the start of next month. Franklin Local Board chairman, Andy Baker, says effort from the local community and police provided instrumental evidence to support 14 ban areas. Also, as a result of the evidence, the board was able to extend some ban areas to include adjoining parks and reserves, including Pine Harbour, Beachlands Domain, Broomfields Point Reserve in Whitford, and the Maraetai Hall grounds. Children’s playgrounds at Omana Esplanade, Orere Point Beach Reserve and Umupuia Coastal Reserve are now included in alcohol ban areas. “For some of the ban areas we’ve taken a measured approach by having specific times that the bans are operational,” Mr Baker says. “ These are common sense improvements that will make alcohol bans less complicated, more certain and much easier to enforce.” The board still has the authority to consider evidence to create new alcohol bans and encourages the public to report any alcohol-related disturbances in public places. Across the Franklin Ward 19 alcohol bans meet the new higher statutory threshold and will be retained while 43 bans that do not meet the new threshold will lapse. Alcohol bans prohibit the consumption of alcohol in public places and are enforced by the New Zealand Police using powers of search, seizure and arrest. Penalties include an infringement fee of $250. public ban New alcohol bans introduced WHaT’S On Fun run organised by Maraetai Beachlands Kindergarten.
