York could soon get another alcohol exclusion zone


12:00am 13th April 2012

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:

The council has approved plans for all of the area within the boundary of the A1237 to be subject to a Designated Public Places Order (DPPO).

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.
