Mobilising the community to fight against alcohol harm

From Nine To Noon, 9:27 am on 27 January 2015

The Mangere Otahuhu Community Board has been spearheading the fight to reduce the high number of liquor outlets in the area, including appealing decisions as individuals when the council would not allow it to appeal as a board. It has since won a battle to give local boards the right to oppose liquor licenses. Lydia Sosene is the chair of the Mangere Otahuhu Community board, which has been mobilising the community to oppose new licenses.
