We are reviewing the need for a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in Langwith and Whaley Thorns. We are therefore consulting all community representatives/ interested parties.

A PSPO is a provision, created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, which is intended to deal with persistent and unreasonable conduct by individuals in a public place which is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.

The aim is to stop individuals or groups committing anti-social behaviour in public spaces. They are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour. Enforcement can be undertaken by council officers, police officers and PCSOs.

In 2015 we made a PSPO which was successful in tackling anti-social behaviour in Langwith. We have worked with the Police and believe that there is a need for the order to be reviewed. Based on the latest reports of anti-social behaviour witnessed and reported to the police, we are removing a prohibition which is no longer needed, and creating a direction to leave requirement.

The proposal is that there will be a new Order which will introduce restrictions for the use of a defined area. If you have any comments or objections to the above we would appreciate your feedback by Monday 25 November 2019. A decision as to whether to issue an Order with new terms will be made after the consultation ends.
