Have your say on public space orders

Posted by

Residents have until the end of March to give their views on proposed new orders aimed at tackling anti-social behaviour in North Somerset.

North Somerset Council is proposing to introduce Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) designed to prevent individuals or groups of individuals committing anti-social behaviour in public places.

The PSPOs will replace existing dog control orders, designated public protection orders that help the police tackle alcohol related anti-social behaviour and, where appropriate, local byelaws.

An eight-week public consultation ends on Friday 31 March.

“PSPOs will enable us to deal with a particular nuisance or problem that is detrimental to the local community by imposing conditions on the use of an area,” said Cllr Peter Bryant, North Somerset Council’s executive member responsible for parks and green spaces.

“We have liaised with the police and town and parish councils to identify areas that could benefit from a PSPO and now we want to hear what local residents think.

“Have we got it right? Are these the right orders in the right places? We want people to let us know.”

Residents can view all the proposed orders and have their say online at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/pspo. A copy of the consultation document can be requested by ringing 01934 888 802 or emailing pspoconsult@n-somerset.gov.uk.
