New alcohol free zones proposed

New alcohol free zones proposed Residents are being encouraged to have their say on the proposed locations of Alcohol Free Zones and Alcohol Prohibited Areas in Canterbury-Bankstown. Yes alcohol free zones city of canterbury bankstown  

​Residents are being encouraged to have their say on the proposed locations of Alcohol Free Zones and Alcohol Prohibited Areas in Canterbury-Bankstown. 

Administrator Richard Colley said the proposed new locations are: 

  • ​The full length of Broughton Street, from Canterbury Road to the Cooks River, and Jeffery Street, from Canterbury Road to John Street, Canterbury; 
  • ​Campbell Oval and Pat O’Connor Reserve, Canterbury; 
  • Croydon Park, Croydon Park; 
  • 77 Anderson Avenue, Panania - the public space surrounding Panania Library, Senior Citizens Centre and Early Childhood Centre. 
  • Hughes Park and Girraween Park, Earlwood; and
  • Warwick Reserve, Hurlstone Park; 

“Alcohol Free Zones help reduce anti-social behaviour that occurs as a result of the consumption of alcohol in public places,” Mr Colley said. 

“These zones have proven to be effective right across Australia, including Canterbury-Bankstown. 

“A number of residents have expressed concern, at our Local Safety Forums, regarding the actions of people who have consumed alcohol, particularly in some public parks and reserves. 

“Council has subsequently worked with police to identify these spots and move to introduce Alcohol Free Zones in these areas.” 

The eight new locations have been added to the existing 45 locations where Alcohol Free Zones are currently imposed in Canterbury-Bankstown. These have also been extended. 

“This is another way Council and Police are working with the community to ensure our City continues to be an attractive place to live and work in, enjoy and visit,” Mr Colley said. 

“Consumption of alcohol is legal but there is a time and a place and these locations are not the place.” 

Residents can ​provide feedback on the proposed new locations by visiting
