Council & City

Local approved products policy

This policy will guide the decision making of the Psychoactive Substances Regulatory Authority if needed in future.

In 2014 the Council adopted a draft local approved products policy to determine the places in the city that psychoactive products could be sold.

Changes to the law regarding the sale of psychoactive products means that there are now no products being legally sold in Palmerston North or anywhere else in New Zealand. However the provision for local authorities to develop local approved products policies is unchanged.
