What we’re doing

We’re requesting community feedback on proposed temporary alcohol-free zones from 17 February to 6 March 2023 for the WorldPride festival.

These streets were nominated by NSW Police to help prevent alcohol related anti-social behaviour and crime in public places.

Alcohol-free zones apply to public roads and footpaths. Alcohol-prohibited areas apply to parks and civic spaces.

These designated public areas provide NSW police with the authority to tip out or confiscate alcohol. There are no fines associated with these zones and areas.

Why we’re doing this

Outdoor alcohol restrictions are part of the City of Sydney’s public health and safety program. We’re responsible for creating and maintaining well-designed streets and public spaces that are safe for everyone to enjoy.

These zones and areas are not related to licensed premises. We’re a strong supporter of the night-time economy and the thousands of businesses that contribute to our safe, diverse and vibrant nightlife.
