Anti-social Behaviour & Alcohol

As the weather gets warmer and people spend more time outdoors, we often see an increase in alcohol related anti-social behaviour. Drinking in public spaces & in large groups can intimidate people, cause noise nuisance & deter other residents from enjoying our community spaces.

Don't put up with it!

  • A Designation Order is in place in St.Helens, which covers most of the borough &  gives the Council the right to designate areas where people can not drink alcohol if asked to do so by the Police ( such as parks, open spaces & in the street) - if they refuse they could face a fine or be arrested.
  • The Police can seize alcohol from under 18s or anyone who they suspect is going to supply an under 18 with alcohol.
  • If someone under the age of 18 is caught in possession of alcohol on three or more occassions within a period of 12 months, they can be arrested and if convicted, could be liable to a fine of up to £500.
