StatusCurrent
Consultation summaryIn 2010, South Lanarkshire Council made byelaws prohibiting the drinking of alcohol in public areas such as in the street, in parks and in other open spaces within certain settlements. However, to accommodate the views of the Lanark community, those same byelaws allowed people to continue to drink alcohol in public places in Lanark on Lanimer Day.
BackgroundPolice Scotland have expressed concerns at the number of incidents of disorder on Lanimer Day all involving drunkenness and in particular a significant rise of violent crime and associated anti-social behaviour on Lanimer Day 2013 in comparison to a normal Thursday within the town. They have requested that the byelaws be changed so that this relaxation of the byelaws for Lanimer Day is revoked by the Council.
Why are we consulting?The purpose of this consultation with the residents of the community is to determine whether the Council should change the byelaw and not allow the consumption of alcohol in Lanark on Lanimer Day.
