Alcohol ban in Riccarton-Ilam area

Please note there is a permanent alcohol ban in the Riccarton-Ilam area.

This means you are not allowed to consume alcohol or carry open containers of alcohol on the streets and in public spaces in the area – this includes Ilam Road and University Drive.

This alcohol ban is in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A breach of the ban is an offence and the Police will issue an infringement notice (instant fine). 

For more information, and larger map of the Riccarton-Ilam area, see the Christchurch City Council website.  

Think first on Homestead Lane

If you use Homestead Lane, you might have noticed a new construction project. This is to build a new student residential hall, scheduled to open in 2021.

This means Homestead Lane will be busy and may be restricted to one lane or closed to two-way traffic at times. The Orbiter bus route changed in January and you need to walk down Homestead Lane or cross Ilam fields to catch the bus from Waimairi Road.

It’s important to follow signage on Homestead Lane, use open footpaths and avoid restricted or closed areas. Think first, look after yourself and if you see a hazard, report it to Security by calling 0800 823 637.
