Local Alcohol Action Area

6a00d8341c070353ef019b00709bf4970d-600wi Following a successful application by North Somerset Council’s Community Safety Team, Weston is one of the 33 areas chosen by the Home Office for the second phase of the Local Alcohol Action Area (LAAA) programme. The Local Alcohol Action Area (LAAA) programme is a Home Office programme which aims to:
  • Prevent alcohol related crime and disorder
  • Reduce alcohol related health harms
  • Generate economic growth by creating a vibrant and diverse night time economy.
Our key objectives in 2017 for the Weston night-time economy team are:
  • To get MAVISbus out in town every Saturday night.
  • To introduce an accreditation scheme for well managed licensed premises having a positive impact on the night-time economy. This would link into the existing traffic light scheme which ensures licensed premises meet certain standards.
