City council staff have proposed to further restrict alcohol consumption in public places in Ilam and Riccarton after requests from police. The plan is to extend the permanent alcohol ban area near Canterbury University to cover Ilam School which borders the university. “In 2015, police and Canterbury University staff informed council staff that the school area should also be included in the ban area,” a city council staff report said. “Staff agree that by making it part of the alcohol ban area, it will help to prevent any antisocial behaviours caused by alcohol drinking . . . in the school area.” Near the university in Ilam and Riccarton, there were 1028 alcohol disorder offences, 256 instances of wilful damage and 149 minor assaults in the latest statistics from 2016, the city council said. •Turn to page 7 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
