At the Oscott Police Neighbourhood Tasking Group meeting today it was agreed to enforce the Alcohol restrict zone concept again in the Oscott area during the summer period.
It is hoped by doing his acts of anti social street drinking near local pubs can be reduced.
As the Councillor who introduced this concept (many have forgotten this) to the Birmingham area originally after seeing it in action in Wolverhampton, I am in full support of the Police enforcing this scheme again more in the Oscott area. I think it is about time.
There are still many of the original Alcohol Restricted Zone signs in place so there is no excuse to drink on our streets in an anti social way.
Clearly resident having a quiet drink in their gardens and so on will not be effected but those causing trouble when drinking on our streets will at the very least have their drinks confiscated.
