Liquor licence holders in KZN may have to relocate

Liquor law -   Liquor licence holders in KZN with premises within 500m from schools and religious institutions may be asked to relocate.   This was one of two options open to liquor licence holders, according to KZN MEC for economic development, Mike Mabuyakhulu, when asked about the impact of the new KZN liquor act about to be implemented.   The other was to limit current trading hours to hours when schools and religious institutions are closed.   The new liquor act determines that no alcohol products may be sold within 500m from schools and religious institutions.   

We expect licence holders to kick in their heels if asked to limit their current trading hours and even more so if asked to relocate.
