Latest updates


Alcohol Free Zones (AFZs) are established in public roads, footpaths and car parks, where the consumption of alcohol is prohibited. AFZs within Canterbury-Bankstown are reviewed every four years.

Alcohol Prohibited Areas (AFAs) are established in public places, or part of a public place and include parks or reserves, or other public space that has been established by Council where the consumption of alcohol is prohibited. While APAs do not have a maximum duration date, we will review them on the same schedule as AFZs.

The establishment of AFZs and APAs will assist with:

  • Discouraging anti-social behaviour and social disturbances related to the consumption of alcohol in public spaces;
  • Deterring irresponsible street drinking to incidents involving serious crime through prevention techniques; and
  • Encouraging safe, healthy and welcoming alcohol-free public spaces and environments.
