Draft alcohol strategy consultation

We would like your views on our draft alcohol strategy for North Yorkshire.

The strategy is aimed at working with partner organisations "to reduce the harm caused by alcohol to individuals, families, communities and businesses in North Yorkshire while ensuring that people are able to enjoy alcohol responsibly."

Among other things, the strategy will

  • Support schools to make pupils aware of the risks of alcohol abuse;
  • Increase capacity to prevent under-age sales;
  • Support the development of specialist services in areas where professionals come regularly into contact with people suffering the consequences of excessive alcohol consumption;
  • Increase the uptake and ensure the effectiveness of the GP-led NHS Health Checks to identify people in the 40-74 age range at risk of harm from alcohol;
  • Explore the feasibility of a minimum price of alcohol; and
  • Explore the feasibility of increasing the availability and reducing the price of non-alcoholic drinks in licensed premises.

Consultation documents 

See the North Yorkshire alcohol strategy page on our North Yorkshire partnerships website for more details of the strategy and background information.
