What we’re doing

We invite your feedback on proposed outdoor alcohol restrictions that have been nominated for the City of Sydney local area.

These sites were proposed by NSW Police, residents and local businesses to help prevent alcohol-related antisocial behaviour and crime in public places.

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

Why we’re doing this

Outdoor alcohol restrictions help the City of Sydney create and maintain well-designed streets and public squares that are safe and attractive for everyone to enjoy.

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

We will consider your feedback alongside evidence including crime statistics and advice from NSW Police and other key stakeholders. Recommendations will be presented to Council for endorsement.

How you can give feedback

Consultation closes at 5pm on Wednesday 25 October 2023.

Feedback may be published in publicly available reports at the end of the consultation period. Your name or organisation's name may appear in these reports with your feedback attributed. If you would like your feedback to be kept confidential, please let us know when providing your feedback.
