Drinking ban is fashionably late

The introduction of Brockley’s first Drinking Control Zone (DCZ), which covers a huge area around the Lewisham Way end of the conservation area, has been delayed - apparently due to the council failing to put signage in place quick enough.

It shouldn't come as a surprise, since the original date was aptly set for April fool’s day. The DCZ should now be in effect by 1st May. While Brockley Central is not particularly concerned about the delay, it doesn’t generally bode well for Steve Bullock’s commitment to tackling problems with anti-social behaviour in this area.
