·     is appropriate and proportionate in the light of the evidence; and

·     can be justified as a reasonable limitation on people's rights and freedoms.

2.         Resolve to impose a temporary alcohol ban from 7am to 12 midnight on 12 November 2016 (New Zealand Cup Day 2016) in areas surrounding Riccarton Park Racecourse, namely:  both sides of the streets of Yaldhurst Road to Middlepark Road; Epsom Road to Racecourse Road; Buchanans Road to Masham Road; and Masham Road to Yaldhurst Road (see Attachment A - map).
