1.1     Purpose of Report

To advise Council on the process undertaken in reviewing the Joint Alcohol Strategy with Hastings District Council, and to request approval to release the draft Strategy for stakeholder and public feedback prior to finalisation of the document, and adoption by each Council.

 

At the Meeting

It was noted that it was not unusual for ‘at risk’ groups to be identified in such strategies, as it contributes towards specific consideration of the groups’ needs and may drive solutions that are particularly helpful to them. Feedback on other possible target groups for consideration could be provided during the consultation period.

It was further noted that there was the option to review the strategy within  three years rather than the suggested five; elected members could use the opportunity to provide feedback on the strategy if they believed this was a better life cycle for the strategy. 

The Chair advised that an alteration should be made to her recommendation that the officer’s recommendation be adopted, and that her new recommendation be:

·         that part a. of the officer’s recommendation stand, but

·         that part b. should be amended to read “…the Community Services Committee Chair and Councillor Keith Price…”.

This recommendation of the Chair was made based on Councillor Price’s existing responsibilities in liquor licensing and his involvement in the Local Alcohol Policy Joint Group, which has strong links to this Joint Strategy.

 

Committee's Recommendation

Councillors Wright / Wise

a.       That Council approve the release of the draft Joint Alcohol Strategy for stakeholder and public feedback; and

b.       That Council nominate the Community Services Committee Chair and Councillor Keith Price to consider any feedback jointly with the nominated Hastings District Councillors prior to the finalisation of the draft Strategy.
