Local alcohol action areas show partnership at work – BBPA comments


Commenting on today’s Government announcement of the setting up of 20 local alcohol action areas (LAAAs). Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive, said:

“This is a good step forward in showing the positive difference local partnerships can make.

“Through support for schemes such as Pubwatch, Business Improvement Districts, Best Bar None, Street Pastors and Purple Flag, the industry is already very active. We will use these networks, and our members’ local knowledge, to help make these pilots work, and show that partnerships between industry, the local community, police, and councils are the best way to tackle local issues.”

Notes to editors:

The British Beer & Pub Association is the UK’s leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96 per cent of the beer brewed in the UK and around half of Britain’s 49,500 pubs.
