Alcohol Free Zones provide safe and enjoyable public spaces for the community.
An Alcohol Free Zone is a designated area in which the drinking of alcohol is prohibited. Alcohol Free Zones are an important measure used to curtail irresponsible behaviour by individuals and groups on the streets throughout the year. They provide safe public spaces for use by motorists and pedestrians of particular roads, streets, footpaths and car parks free from interference by irresponsible street drinkers.
There are Alcohol Free Zones in the Central Business Districts of the Parkes Shire, as well as our public parks.
A police officer may seize any alcohol in the possession of a person drinking, or has been drinking alcohol within an Alcohol Free Zone.
To make an application for a temporary lift on an alcohol exclusion zone, contact Council's Planning Department on 02 6861 2373.
