New order banning alcohol confirmed at popular Milton Keynes beauty spot post-lockdown
Following this date no alcohol can be drank or brought onto the premises.
From March 31, it will become an offence to consume alcohol at Willen Lake in non-licenced areas or premises.
Those caught drinking in these areas could face a Fixed Penalty Notice or prosecution resulting in a maximum fine of £500.
The Parks Trust will be enforcing a Public Spaces Protection Order in partnership with Milton Keynes Council.
A Parks Trust official noted that 50% of waste was alcohol related at the weekend and also led to "huge increases in anti-social behaviour."
Fines will be reinvested by Milton Keynes Council in Community Safety Projects.
