Why is Council re-establishing these Alcohol Free Zones?

Council has received a request from Ryde Police Area Command to continue the enforcement of Alcohol Free Zones at all four locations for a further four years, as provided for in the Ministerial Guidelines on Alcohol Free Zones.

The Police have noted the success of the Alcohol Free Zones in reducing alcohol related crime and anti-social behaviour, but have indicated that alcohol remains a factor in these areas for crimes. In re-establishing these Alcohol Free Zones it will provide acontinued deterrent to these behaviours and to enable the seizure and disposal of alcohol from persons who choose to consume alcohol on the street.
