Request to consult about the reintroduction of a Public Space Protection Order for the City Centre

17/02/2022 - Request to consult about the introduction of a Public Space Protection Order within the City Walls

Resolved:

 

(i)           That Option 1 be agreed. To consult with local businesses, residents and interested stakeholders on the introduction of a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) within the City Walls, which would mean that the Council and the Police would have greater powers to deal with anti-social behaviour in these areas.

 

Reason: To ensure that the Council actively addresses the issue of anti-social behaviour in our communities.

 

(ii)         That a further report at the end of the consultation, which makes recommendations as to whether to introduce a PSPO taking into account the responses to the consultation, be received at a future Decision Session – Executive Member for Housing & Safer Neighbourhoods.

 

Reason: The Council will need to have due regard to the results of the public consultation exercise and legal criteria in making a decision.
