Public Health works to minimise harm that can result from alcohol and other drug use.
Alcohol is one of the most commonly used drugs in New Zealand. While most people enjoy an occasional drink, alcohol and drug use can create problems in our communities and for people’s health.
Public Health's work includes:
• Working with organisations and groups in the community to educate people and change behaviour around the supply and use of alcohol and other drugs
• Assessing applications for liquor licences to minimise harm
• Monitoring compliance with the Sale & Supply of Alcohol Act 2012  including assisting the Police with Controlled Purchase Operations
• Making submissions (or support our communities to make submissions) around proposed changes to legislation or to Council policy;
If you are concerned about your own or someone else’s drinking or other drug use, the Alcohol Drug Helpline (0800 787797) can support you to make the changes that you want to make.
