The Wet Facility on Roscoe st will be open 7 days a week 12-8pm. Street drinkers will be able to drink in this unit and come and go as they please. There will be no searches done for illegal substances or weapons. Many have mental health issues and addictions to other substances. Most already have accomodation and many travel on the train from outside Liverpool to buy cheap, strong alcohol (sold in the stores around Leece st, Berry st) and also because the begging is good here.
A study compiled by Sheffield university on wet facilities stated they should not be anywhere near schools ( common sense really) tourist attractions, or high residential areas, yet the council have chosen a site which is in close proximity to
