Notice is given that the Public Space Protection Orders ‘Alcohol Free Zones’ in Aberystwyth, Cardigan and Lampeter town centres have been extended until 19/10/2026. (The original Orders that have been in place since 2017 are due to expire on the 19/10/2023).

Public Space Protection Orders are made under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, and make it an offence should a person fail to comply with a request from a Police Officer or an authorised Officer to not consume, or refuse to surrender alcohol to the Officer within the designated area.

Failure to comply with such requests will amount to a breach of the Orders and individuals may be arrested which can result in a fine of up to £500. It is aimed at reducing alcohol-related crime and keeping Ceredigion a safe and pleasant place to live, work and visit.

More information and the maps detailing the areas included in the Public Space Protection Orders are available to view on the Drinking Alcohol in Public Places page.
