Proposed re-establishment of Alcohol Free Zones/ Alcohol Prohibited Areas in Cooma and Jindabyne

Public Exhibition Period: Tuesday 23 April to Friday 24 May 2019.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council wishes to advise that the re-establishment of Alcohol Free Zones and Alcohol Prohibited Areas is proposed for Cooma and Jindabyne.

It is proposed that:

  • Alcohol Free Zones (roads, street footpaths, carparks) will be enforced from 7:00pm to 9:00am inclusive; and
  • Alcohol Prohibited Areas (parks, walking paths, the Lake Jindabyne Foreshore) will be enforced from 9:30pm to 9:00am inclusive.
  • The zoning will apply in the same geographic areas of Cooma and Jindabyne as mapped for the 2018 implementation (maps available in the document library to the right of this page).
  • The zoning will apply for a period of 3.5 years (commencing 1 June 2019 and expiring 31 December 2021)

Background information

Alcohol Free Zones and Alcohol Prohibited Areas forbid the consumption of alcohol in an identified area during specific times. These areas include public roads, footpaths, and public lands such as parks. During the periods specified, police have the right to confiscate and tip out alcohol in these areas. All alcohol-free/prohibited areas will be fully sign-posted.

Alcohol Free Zones and Alcohol Prohibited Areas do not apply to private property, or to street dining areas attached to licensed premises. Event exemptions may be made available at no cost on application to Council.

The full proposal in relation to alcohol-free zones, including detailed maps of the proposed areas, can be viewed in the document library (right of this page), on Council’s website at www.snowymonaro.nsw.gov.au/772 or at any Council office during business hours.
