Proposal to re-establish alcohol free zones in Bailey, Goddard and Holt Streets, Newtown
Council has received a submission from Newtown Police to re-establish an Alcohol-Free Zone in Bailey Street, Goddard Street and Holt Street, Newtown, in order to address anti-social behaviour by individuals and groups of people drinking in these streets.
Bailey, Goddard and Holt Streets are local residential streets and this Alcohol-Free Zone was established by Council in 2011 following requests from residents of Station Street and support from Newtown Police.
Alcohol free zones are designated areas of public space or public roads (including footpaths) where the drinking of alcohol is prohibited. These restrictions apply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Established alcohol free zones
Alcohol free zones have been established at the following locations:
