Tamworth Regional Council is proposing to renew the alcohol-free zones already in place in Kootingal, Robert Street, Bridge Street, Coledale and the Tamworth, Manilla and Barraba Central Business Districts for a further four years until 29 December 2026.

Before this occurs, the report was on public exhibition and available for public feedback before 7 December 2022 – have your say.

The alcohol-free zones around our region have received widespread community support since the first alcohol free zone was established in 1994. These zones have been effective in discouraging the consumption of alcohol on public roads, footpaths and car parks within the CBD, and creating safer public spaces around our region.
