MANLY CBD ALCOHOL FREE ZONE
Voted through unanimously to reinstate this zone for a further 4 years.
To re-establish the Alcohol Free Zone (AFZ) in the Manly CBD area in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1993.
SUMMARY Alcohol Free Zones are a public space management tool that assists in combatting anti-social behaviour in relation to excessive alcohol consumption. By establishing AFZs, Council can assist the Police in managing alcohol consumption on public roads, footpaths and carparks. To date the implementation of these controls has been effective in the curbing of anti-social behaviour in Manly.
Following the prescribed consultation process, it is proposed to retain the existing AFZ bounded by North Steyne and South Steyne, Ashburner Street, East and West Esplanade, Eustace Street, Pittwater Road and Steinton Street for a further period of 4 years.
In addition, Police have requested that an extension of the zone be considered, including the streets surrounding Manly Oval and Ivanhoe Park bounded by Sydney Road, Park Ave and Raglan Street, Manly, as identified in the Map (see Attachment 1).
Public consultation occurred from 28 April to 28 May 2018, including direct consultation with NSW Police Northern Beaches Police Area Command (NBLAC).
