Following concerns raised by members of the public, The City of Cape Town has created a proposed liquor trading hours by-law and now invites members of the public, the hospitality industry and other stakeholders to provide them with comment on the proposed by-law so that they are able to draft a fair legislation which balances everyone’s rights in the city.
“The Western Province government has set up a new act called the Cape Liquor Act number 4 2009 which sets down a generic set of operating hours, basically if you are on consumption you are allowed to keep your premises open from 11am till 2am and if you are off consumption from 9 am to 6pm.” said City spokesperson Councillor Taki Amira
