Drinking alcohol in public areas such as the street or in local parks can often be
a nuisance to local communities and their residents.
To reduce alcohol related nuisance and disorder, all councils in Scotland have alcohol
byelaws in place.
You can download a copy of the alcohol byelaw for the Falkirk Council area:
- Byelaw prohibiting consumption of alcohol
Under the byelaw it is illegal to drink alcohol in certain public places across the
Falkirk Council area. To find out where these public places are, please view our
Review and update
To ensure communities continue to be protected from alcohol related nuisance we are proposing to update the alcohol byelaw.
Consultation has taken place with Police Scotland and the Procurator Fiscal. The proposals are now out for public consultation.
There is a change proposed to the wording of the offence.
There are some adjustments made to the areas covered by the byelaw to include areas of new house building.
This consultation will close on 16 March 2018.
