The Dunedin City Council is further delaying its local alcohol policy.

The new policy was due to be revealed at a council meeting on Monday, as reported last night by 39 Dunedin News.

But it's no longer likely to be considered before July.

Council staff say meeting schedules for June are almost full, and councillors' time is being taken up by long term plan deliberations.

The council hasn't set a date for when it will reveal the new alcohol policy.

In the meantime, bar owners say they're waiting in limbo, unsure what changes the council will impose on their businesses.
