HEAR SOMETHING, SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING
Council is committed to working in partnership with residents, police, community organisations, the business community, and state and federal governments to ensure the Wollondilly Shire is a safe and welcoming place to live, work and visit.
Alcohol Free Zones
What is an alcohol-free zone?
An alcohol- free zone is an area where it is illegal to consume alcohol 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Any person seen drinking in an alcohol- free zone may have the alcohol in their possession immediately seized and tipped out or otherwise disposed of by Police. Once established each alcohol- free zone is in place for a maximum of four years.
Wollondilly Shire Council uses alcohol- free zones in some areas to prevent street drinking and improve public safety. The zones minimise the chances of disorderly behaviour and alcohol related crime on the streets. These zones are part of a program to discourage irresponsible alcohol consumption that involves the Wollondilly Shire Council, NSW Police and the local community.
