GETTING COMMUNITIES IN ON THE ACT
HPA Alcohol workshop series
One of the main aims of the recent changes to alcohol laws is to give communities more control over the sale and supply of alcohol in their area.
For local alcohol policies and licensing decisions to reflect the needs and desires of the local community, decision-makers need to hear not only from the statutory agencies and the industry but also from members of your community who are impacted by the decisions being made.
This workshop will enable you and your community to get more involved. It will provide you with the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary for you and others in your community to contribute to the key decision-making processes.
As a result of the workshop participants will:
• be familiar with the sections of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 that provide for community involvement and understand the scope of that involvement
• be able to identify and collect the information needed to support a submission or undertake other actions
• be familiar with the formal processes involved particularly council meetings and hearings
• know how to make a community submission really stand out from the crowd
• be confident and able to help other members of their community get ‘in on the Act’.
A Workshop will be held in Nelson on 13 November 2014 from 10am til 1pm at the Trafalgar Pavilion, Nelson. The Workshop is run in partnership with the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board, Community and Public Health, Keep Victory Safe and Health Action Trust.
Lunch will be provided.
