  • Alcohol Free Zones in Wollondilly

    28 Jun 2017 - 25 Jul 2017

    The aim of an Alcohol Free Zone is to improve public safety by preventing disorderly behaviour caused by the consumption of alcohol in public areas.


    An Alcohol Free Zone may be established for a maximum period of four years. Once established they apply for twenty four hours per day. Council must erect a sign at the outer limits of the zone and at suitable intervals within the zone.


    Alcohol Free Zones are established under the relevant provisions of the Local Government Act 1993 and Ministerial Guidelines.


    On 12 December 2011, Wollondilly Shire Council resolved to implement Alcohol Free Zones for a period of four years from December 2011 to December 2015 in a number of towns and villages in Wollondilly.


    These Alcohol Free Zones have now lapsed and Council would like to re-establish them across the Shire from September 2017 - September 2021.


    When considering the reinstatement of the Alcohol Free Zones Council considered the following:


    • What were the factors which originally supported a zoning in that area?
    • How successful was the previous alcohol-free zone in achieving a reduction in acceptable street drinking?
    • What do Police statistics indicate about the value of re-instating an alcohol free zone in that area?
    • What other measures may need to be considered (e.g. a community education program) if unacceptable street drinking is still of concern in that area?
    • Has the community's perceptions of safety improved?
