SI17/24           Amendment to Alcohol Free Zones in Coffs Harbour CBD

 

Executive Summary

The closing ceremony of the Coffs Coast FIA World Rally Championship in November 2017 is the culmination of a week-long event which attracts thousands of visitors to the area and is televised globally. As in previous years, this ceremony will be held in Harbour Drive, Coffs Harbour. Part of the winners’ celebrations includes the traditional spraying of champagne.
