Council seeks residents' views on alcohol-related crime

pspo consultation

 Residents in Altrincham and Sale town centres are being asked for their views on alcohol-related crime as part of a Trafford Council licensing consultation.

The Council is asking businesses and residents in these areas to tell them about any issues they have with street drinking and anti-social behaviour as it consults on its licensing policy.
The local authority is currently reviewing its policy and is consulting with residents, local businesses, premises licence holders and other interested parties in the Trafford area. It is particularly interested in the views of people living in the centre of Altrincham and Sale as these are Cumulative Impact Zones meaning they are areas which may be impacted by the opening of more licensed premises. To comment, please complete our online survey before September 18.

Cllr Mike Freeman, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Public Safety, Governance and Reform, said:

“I would encourage as many residents and businesses as possible to take part in this consultation by filling in the online survey. This is all about making town centres safer by reducing the possibility of alcohol related crime and anti-social behaviour, and for that reason it is vitally important.”

The Statement of Licensing Policy is a document the Council must produce by law and sets out its approach to licensing in Trafford. It gives clear guidance to licence holders, applicants and people who may comment on licence applications of the Council’s policies and expectations.
