York could soon get another alcohol exclusion zone.
The council wants to set one up for the area within the outer ring road.
If it goes ahead the police would be able to seize alcohol off anyone acting antisocially.
Minster FM's been finding out what you think.
We spoke to these people in Woodthorpe:
This gives police the power to seize alcoholic drinks in public places from anyone deemed to be behaving antisocially as a result of drinking.
The matter will now go into a period of public consultation with licensed premises being contacted about the plans.
Safer York Partnership, which made the proposal, said there are currently 20 alcohol exclusion zones in York.
