About The Petition
Petition Open Date: August 2018
We’re preparing to launch a petition calling for a referendum on The Trusts monopoly of alcohol sales (taverns, hotels and off-licenses) in West Auckland. A referendum will give West Aucklanders the chance to vote on whether or not The Trusts monopoly should remain. There hasn’t been a public vote on The Trusts since 2003!
All going to plan, our aim is to kick-off the petition sometime in August 2018.
The petition will need to be signed by AT LEAST 15 per cent of people who live in West Auckland in order to force a referendum. That means we need 12,684 signatures in the Portage Licensing Trusts area and 15,283 signatures in the Waitākere Licensing Trusts area. This is a big task!
