Whilst the order covers the whole district, the council has recently installed new signage at a number of hot spot locations across the district where the council has received repeated complaints. Police will pay particular attention to these areas.
It is important to note that these poweres do not make it a criminal offence to consume alcohol within a designated area. An offence is committed if the individual refuses to comply with a constable's request to refrain from drinking.
- Cut down on alcohol related anti-social behaviour in public places around the district;
- Show that anti-social drinking is not acceptable and will not be tolerated in Thanet’s public places;
- Help make Thanet a place where residents, workers and visitors feel safe.
If you experience any anti-social behaviour please call a member of the Community Safety Team by calling Thanet District Council on 01843 577000. To report a crime call Kent Police on 101 (in an emergency always dial 999).
