We'd like to know what you think of our draft updated Consumption of Liquor in Public Places Local Law.

The intent of the new draft remains the same: making our shared spaces safe and welcoming. Most of the updates relate to reducing repetition and making it easier to understand.

Generally speaking, the Local Law prohibits the drinking of alcohol (and the carrying of alcohol in open containers) in public places.

Some public spaces are excluded from these rules. These are known as ‘prescribed areas’. Drinking and carrying alcohol in open containers is allowed in these area between 9.00am and 9.00pm.

The current list of prescribed areas can be viewed here.

You can view the new draft Local Law here, along with a summary of changes from the current Local Law.

You can also ask questions and provide feedback in person:

What: Drop in session
Where: Gleadell Street Market, Richmond
When: Saturday 15 June, any time between 10am and midday

Your feedback will be used to improve the draft Local Law before it is updated for formal public exhibition later this year.

This survey will close on Thursday 4 July 2019.
