I received the following email from the Council about what residents think about a "controlled drinking zone" being set up across the Borough. I thought the readers of the Bulletin Board who might not be in Islington's mailing list might want to respond, so I've posted it here. The link below will take you to the short questionnaire.
We would like to know what local residents think of the proposal to have a controlled drinking zone (CDZ), also known as a Designated Public Place Order, across Islington.
The CDZ would enable the police to stop people drinking alcohol in public places, where they are causing, or likely to cause a nuisance or annoyance to other people. The Order would not ban drinking in public places but it would give the police additional powers to deal with anti-social behaviour associated with drinking.
You can complete the survey attached, or online at www.islington.gov.uk/drinkingzone. The consultation closes on 8 May.
