Draft Alcohol Use on Public Reserves and Beaches Policy

Consultation has concluded

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council wants to ensure our parks, reserves and beaches are great places for everyone to enjoy.

The Alcohol Use on Public Reserves and Beaches Policy acts as a framework for alcohol consumption at these special places. The Policy was first established in 1996 and has been amended at regular intervals in accordance with changes of policy and regulations in the Local Government Act and NSW Alcohol Legislation.

To ensure we are looking after our community, under the draft Policy the following locations have alcohol restrictions:

  • Alcohol Prohibition Zones at all parks, reserves and sports fields across the local government area between 9.00pm and 12.00pm (noon);
  • Council has also established an alcohol prohibition period from 9pm January 25th to 12pm (noon) January 27th;

The following locations will continue to be alcohol-free:

  • East from Buller Street Bridge to Murray Street including Short, Horton and Hay Streets and Keen, Barracks and Phillip Lanes;
  • North from the top end of Horton Street though to Sunset Parade including Clarence, William and Hayward Streets;
  • Entertainment precincts including Hay Street Forecourt and Town Square.
