What we’re doing

The City of Sydney is responsible for creating and maintaining well-designed streets and public spaces that are safe and attractive for residents, workers and visitors.

In our area, outdoor alcohol restrictions apply in public streets and parks to help prevent alcohol-related antisocial behaviour and crime.

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

They provide NSW police with the authority to tip out or confiscate alcohol. There are no fines associated with the offence.

We’re seeking your feedback about these restrictions.

We’ll consider your feedback, crime statistics and advice from NSW police and other key stakeholders. Recommendations about future outdoor alcohol restrictions will be presented to Council in mid-2024.
