The Hills Shire Council currently has four Alcohol-Free Zones located on the road reserves at the following locations:
● Castle Hill Main Street, Pennant Street and CBD areas.
● Glanmire Road, Baulkham Hills.
● Baulkham Hills Town Centre, 19, 21-25 & 27 Yattenden Crescent, Baulkham Hills.
● Caroline Chisholm Drive, Winston Hills.
Under the Local Government Act, Council is required to investigate whether the zones are required for a further four-year period.
It is proposed to install a new Alcohol-Free Zone in Rouse Hill in a section of Mile End Road, Windsor Road and Commercial Road and in Resolution Place. It is also proposed to extend the existing Alcohol- Free Zone in Castle Hill to include Terminus Street, a section of Cecil Avenue, Cheriton Avenue and an additional section of Showground Road.
