Alcohol Free Zone - Port Macquarie CBD

Community engagement on this proposal has concluded

The existing Alcohol-Free Zone (AFZ) in the Port Macquarie CBD is due to expire in December. Given the success of the AFZ over the past 7 years, Council is proposing to continue the zone for another 4 years

Minor changes have occurred in the new zone to remove the Hay Street Forecourt and the end of Horton Street which is soon to be redeveloped into Town Square. These areas have been identified as entertainment precincts for future community events.

The zone boundaries are:

  • East from Buller Street Bridge to Murray Street (including Short, Horton and Hay Streets and Keena, Barracks and Phillips Lane).
  • North from the top end of Gordon Street through to Sunset Parade (including Clarence, William and Hayward Streets).

What do you think about re-establishing the AFZ for another 4 years?

You can have your say by having a look at the AFZ Map and making a Submission.
