If your Council does not have a signage bylaw

If your Council does not have a bylaw, encourage your Council to develop one, please check out the section on alcohol in public places.

Record the details of the advertisement you are concerned about.  You can download an incident log (above) to record your problem.

Contact your local council to ask why a bylaw has not been developed, or whether it is currently being written.
