Waverton Alcohol Managed Areas Renewal - 2019 to 2023

Council’s current Alcohol Free Zones (on streets) and Alcohol Prohibited Areas (in parks) have been renewed until November 2023. In the process the Alcohol Managed areas in Waverton which were in force from 2015 to 2019 were overlooked.

On 24 February 2020, Council resolved:

1. THAT the Alcohol Prohibited Areas and Alcohol Free Zones in Waverton as illustrated in this report be renewed for four years, to expire on 30 November 2023, and that this proposal be placed on Public Exhibition for a minimum of 28 days.

The related Council Report can be viewed in the document library.



Background

Alcohol Free Zones (AFZs) on streets and Alcohol Prohibited Areas in parks are established under Section 644, 644A, and 644B, and Section 632 and 632A, respectively, of the Local Government Act 1993. AFZs cannot be declared for more than 4 years and on establishment or renewal must be accompanied by public consultation, including with the local Police Command and Licensees in the areas affected.

While establishing Alcohol Prohibited Areas is not restricted in the same way as AFZs, and they need not be time restricted, Council has voluntarily adopted a process that enables public consultation on both categories at the same time, as it considers this to be in the interests of ready understanding and communication between the public and Police. For more information refer to the Council Report in the document library.
