Tackling availability

police car

We want to reduce the harm caused by substance misuse related crime and anti-social behaviour.

We intend to tackle the availability of illegal drugs and the inappropriate availability of alcohol and other substances. This includes the sale of alcohol or solvents to young people.

Overall, we want:

  • local partners to work more closely with local trading standards departments to tackle traders who persistently sell alcohol to children
  • to make the best use of current powers and legislation
  • to ensure that the full range of sanctions are brought to bear against individuals who drink irresponsibly, and licensees who continue to serve them
  • partners to take a holistic approach to the management of our towns and cities during the evening and night time.
