As the bank holiday weekend approaches, the weather is tempting more people to go out and enjoy the shops, parks, and alfresco dining across the borough.
Police and council officers have the power to move groups on and fine people for drinking alcohol in unlicensed public spaces in Chester City center and across the borough with a recently enforced Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).
Officers with Cheshire West and Chester Council are reminding everyone to book in with Cheshire pubs and restaurants as a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is in place across the borough. The order prohibits drinking alcohol in areas that aren’t licensed, including streets, parks, and the Chester amphitheater.
Maria Byrne, Director Environment and Communities said:
