What was proposed?

An Alcohol Free Zone (AFZ) is used to prevent disorderly behaviour caused by the consumption of alcohol in public areas in order to improve public safety.

AFZs apply to public roads, footpaths, carparks and laneways in designated areas and are in force 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Northern Beaches Council proposed the establishment of an Alcohol Free Zone in the following location in Mona Vale, adjacent to the existing AFZ, until 31 August 2025:

  • Barrenjoey Road from Darley Street to Seabeach Avenue, down Seabeach Avenue to Terrol Crescent, and along Terrol Crescent adjacent to Seabeach Gardens Retirement Village.

View the location plan.

This was in response to concerns raised by residents of the Seabeach Gardens Retirement Village who were experiencing issues with alcohol related antisocial behaviour. Council endorsed the public exhibition of the proposal at its meeting on 28 June 2022.

The community were invited to have their say by completing a submission form, emailing us and writing to us.

Submissions were open from Friday 15 July to Sunday 14 August.
