Last night Council’s Infrastructure and Public Space Committee voted in favour of a recommendation to extend the Dry Zone for a further 6 months. The matter will go before Council next week. I opposed the recommendation as the preliminary report (page 30 of Agenda) stated that the Dry Zone is simply displacing anti-social behaviour to other parts of the city and not addressing the root cause. In particular, I am concerned that this law and order approach may be further marginalising vulnerable people. Some of my comments were reported in The Advertiser.
