Cape Town liquor hearings begin next week

2013-04-12 15:31

Cape Town’s public participation process relating to the liquor-trading days and hours by-law begins next Friday.

“The city calls on residents to comment on the ... by-law, which (is) up for revision,” Garreth Bloor, economic, environmental and spatial planning mayoral committee member said today.

The city is reviewing certain aspects of the by-law, relating specifically to the implementation of revised trading hours, and a Sunday prohibition on the sale of liquor from licensed premises.

This follows a request from the city council last month to consider and initiate amendments to the by-law.

The council recommended that off-site consumption be permitted on application by licence holders in certain categories, excluding local business and residential areas.

As it stands, the by-law states that licensed businesses may sell liquor for off-site consumption from Monday to Saturday between 9am and 6pm.

No liquor may be sold off-site on a Sunday, except for wineries, which can trade from their tasting rooms on that day.
