Islington Bans Nuisance Drinkers

Controlled Drinking Zones are a useful tool in the armoury of councils and the police in dealing with those people who choose to cause a nuisance or disorder in local communities.

The effect of CDZ’s tends to be somewhat exaggerated in some media channels and providing enforcement is both effective and proportionate, they should have no impact on the vast majority of residents and visitors to the area; but rather enhance the sense of safety on the streets.

Controlled Drinking Zones give the authorities the power to remove alcohol from street drinkers if they feel it is necessary to maintain order, surely a common sense approach which will only add to the attraction of Islington and providing a common sense approach is taken to enforcement, should be welcomed by licensed premises in the area.
