Possible Extension of the Alcohol Free Zone

This consultation seeks views about the recommendation to extend the Alcohol Consumption in Designated Public Places Order (Alcohol Free Zone) along De Parys Avenue, Bedford from the Broadway up to and including Burnaby Road.

 

Bedford Borough Council is to consider a recommendation that the necessary Order be made to create an Alcohol Free Zone in the stretch of De Parys Avenue, Bedford, between its junctions with the Broadway and Burnaby Road (as well as Burnaby Road itself). It is currently planned that the recommendation will be considered at a Full Council meeting on the 15th October 2014.  The recommendation is from The Borough General Licensing Committee. For more information please click here

 

Within an Alcohol Free Zone it is an offence to continue to drink alcohol when warned to stop by a Police Constable.  The Police also have powers to confiscate alcohol from those committing this offence.   The Police do not have these powers outside of the Zone.

 

A large area of central Bedford has already been designated an Alcohol Free Zone by a previous Order. .

 

If you have any comments or questions about the recommended Order please use the contact details below.  Views are actively sought within the period 03/08 to 31/08 2014.  All views submitted in relation to this recommendation will be made public unless you advise otherwise.  This detail would include your name and address/email address.
