What would you expect from Invercargill...
Some nightclubs and bars are resisting Invercargill City Council's move to close them down earlier.
At the moment the night spots can stay open till 4.30am and some of the the licenses with that closing time are valid for a couple more years. But the Invercargill council has brought in a new policy to have licensed premises closed by 3am.
Councillor Darren Ludlow says its disappointing some bar owners are not playing ball. He says the council was looking for an accord that would bring everyone into line to shut down at 3am. He says they have not been able to get everyone to agree and it is frustrating.
Mr Ludlow says from now on all new liquor licenses issued will stipulate premises close at 3am.
