Council agrees to extend alcohol ban


News | Community

A city centre alcohol ban to tackle public drunkenness and associated anti-social behaviour will be extended in Peterborough after councillors gave the proposal the green light.

 


The boundary of the new area will run along Bourges Boulevard to the Embankment and Potter’s Way to the Boongate roundabout. It will continue along Boongate and up Eastfield Road to the junction of Newark Avenue.

A separate area will include Eastfield Cemetery and the area around Newark Hill Primary School. Newark Avenue will mark the northern boundary, with it continuing south along Garton End Road, Park Road and on to Huntly Grove. That area will enclose Central Park, Deacon’s School and Peterborough Regional College. The boundary will then continue along Huntly Grove to Green Lane and Taverner’s Road, before finally joining up with Bourges Boulevard again at the roundabout at Westwood Bridge.

Katy Softley, community team leader at Peterborough City Council, said: “This extension to the current Designated Public Place Order will help tackle public drunkeness and associated anti-social behaviour. However, the order does not prevent people from drinking in the designated area outside licensed premises such as beer gardens or in their own gardens.

“If somebody continues to drink in the area when asked not to do so by a police officer they may be arrested and fined £500 if convicted. The police can also arrest anyone failing to surrender alcohol in the area when asked to do so.”

Councillors voted in favour of making a Designated Public Place Order (DPPO), under the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001, to prevent the consumption of alcohol in public in the proposed areas at a meeting of the full council on Wednesday 11 April. It will be advertised in the local press before coming into force on Thursday 17 May.
