Mona Vale AFZ
Proposed new AFZ
AFZs cover roads, footpaths and public carparks in designated areas across the Northern Beaches.
Once designated, AFZs are in place for up to 4 years and on expiry can be reviewed in consultation with Police and the community per the Ministerial Guidelines on Alcohol Free Zones 2009. If appropriate, Council can determine to re-establish the AFZ.
Note: This page is updated as new AFZs come up for review.
AFZs cover roads, footpaths and public carparks in designated areas across the Northern Beaches.
Drinking alcohol in these zones is prohibited 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. AFZs may be renewed every four years, and may also be established for special events.
AFZs allow the Police and Rangers to confiscate and dispose of alcohol if a person is drinking, if there is reasonable cause to believe the person is about to drink or has recently been drinking in a designated AFZ.
Anyone refusing to co-operate with an enforcement officer request to hand over alcohol can be charged with obstruction, which carries a maximum penalty of up to $2200.
Note: AFZs differ from Alcohol Prohibited Areas (APAs) which are applicable in parks and reserves and come under Section6 32A of the Local Government Act.
We want the Northern Beaches to continue to be one of the safest areas in the country to live, work and play.
AFZs are designed to improve public safety by preventing:
AFZs can be an effective public space management tool to address community concern for specific locations.
Through the engagement undertaken in the development of the Northern Beaches Community Safety Plan and Better Together Social Sustainability Strategy 2040, the community identified a reduction in alcohol related behaviour in public spaces as a means of achieving increased safety.
We are committed to ensuring that open spaces are high quality, safe, accessible and facilitate the healthy and active lifestyle that is important to the Northern Beaches community.
Re-establishing these Alcohol Free Zones (AFZs) will not restrict existing liquor licences within approved outdoor dining areas. If the café/restaurant has a liquor licence for the outdoor dining area and you are currently enjoying outdoor dining in this location, this will not change.
When determining new applications for outdoor dining, Council considers many factors including existing or planned AFZs. AFZs do not preclude an outdoor dining application from being approved nor the business's ability to apply for a liquor licence for this area.
Alcohol Free Zones (AFZs) do not apply to parks. AFZs only apply to roads, footpaths and public carparks as indicated in the maps.
