- any person who whilst in a public area within the Restricted Area, without reasonable excuse, fails to surrender any intoxicating liquor in their possession when asked to do so by an authorised officer, commits an offence.
- an authorised officer who imposes a requirement under Article 4(a) and/or 4(b) above must tell the person that failing, without reasonable excuse, to comply with the prohibition and/or requirement is an offence.
Any breaches would result in the issuing of a Fixed Penalty Notice to the person failing to comply the prohibition.
This matter is open to consultation from 3 August 2020 via a survey on the following web page is www.flintshire.gov.uk/alcoholPSPO which includes a list of potential sites where the prohibitions would be enforced, a Frequently Asked Questions document, and a copy of the draft order.
