Consulting on a Controlled Drinking Area

You may have heard that Hackney Council and partners are considering making Hackney a controlled drinking area to allow police the powers to seize alcohol from people causing a nuisance.

Hackney already has controlled areas or Designated Public Protection Orders but these are not borough-wide so problems can just move around the borough.

Hackney Council are seeking residents views and we would encourage you to respond if you feel strongly for the proposal or against the proposal.  You can read the further information and respond here.  The deadline for responses is 28 December 2009.

You can view all other consultations here.
