Where the NTE strategy focuses on improved dispersal of patrons. The ‘Departure Lounge’ on Friday and Saturday evenings/nights.
The Lounge can be a marquee off one of the main streets which advises people on travel options and gives out provisions that may improve people’s state (fluids, glucose and caffeine in the shape of tea, coffee juice, biscuits and lollipops).
The Lounge links into the CCTV, police and the Ambulance Services.
The policy also had the by-product of creating some cohesion amongst NTE community members.
