Code of practice issued to help retailers combat disorder

13 July, 2007

Authorities in Cheltenham have issued shops and pubs with a voluntary code of practice to follow as part of plans to cut alcohol -related violent crime and disorder in the borough.

The document, released on June 26, outlines how those involved in Cheltenham's night-time economy should be running their businesses to help make the town a safer place.

Recommendations include Challenge 25 schemes, considering putting stickers carrying health warnings and the shop's name on bottles and cans, and having a procedure in place to deal with customers who are refused service.

Trevor Gladding, community safety and licensing team leader at Cheltenham Borough Council, said: "This is ground-breaking work. Many areas have come up with individual ways to attempt to address this issue, but I believe our codes of practice are innovative and all encompassing."
