Alcohol Control Zone consultation

Newham Council is considering making a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) to enforce an Alcohol Control Zone. This is to address alcohol related crime and disorder within the borough.
The proposed PSPO will replace the existing Designated Public Place Order (DPPO). The PSPO will allow Police and Authorised Officers to ask individuals to stop drinking and have their alcoholic drinks confiscated, if they are deemed to be acting antisocially.
 
The PSPO - Alcohol Control Zone will be in effect for three years upon date of enactment. It will apply borough-wide to all public spaces within the London Borough of Newham, as set out in the Notice:
We would like to invite you to take part in a consultation to gauge your views on alcohol related crime and disorder within the borough and the proposed PSPO.
Newham Council is committed to reducing alcohol related crime and disorder. The Council considers that bringing in the PSPO - Alcohol Control Zone, which will replace the existing DPPO, will continue to make the borough a safer place for residents, visitors and businesses.
 
The formal consultation will run from 31 August 2017 – 27 September 2017.
