A CRACKDOWN on drunken behaviour in Conisbrough is being planned by council bosses in a blitz taking in four towns and villages.
Police will get extra powers to tackle alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour in Conisbrough, Old Denaby, Denaby and Clifton if a restriction order is agreed by councillors.
Doncaster Borough Council wants to introduce a Designated Public Place Order which would enable both police officers and PCSOs to confiscate alcohol being drunk in public places.
Anyone who refuses to comply could be arrested and fined up to 500.
The move follows a rise in drink-related disorder in the area, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
The order is aimed at anti-social drinking and is not a blanket ban on alcohol outdoors.
If agreed by the cabinet committee on Monday, the order will need to be approved at a full council meeting on Monday, September 6.
A similar order has already been implemented in Mexborough.
