ADOPTION OF PUBLIC SPACE PROTECTION ORDER

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Cabinet is recommended to approve the introduction of a Public Space Protection Order subject to the outcome of the consultation process.

 

Decision:

Cabinet:

(1)          considered and noted the information contained the ASB and crime statistics report at Appendix 2 to the report;

(2)          considered and took into account the outcome of the public consultation regarding the introduction of a PSPO at Appendix 3 to the report;

(3)          agreed to the adoption of the proposed PSPO at Appendix 4to the report to begin on November 1st 2019 for a period of three years;

(4)          agreed to the adoption of the geographic area and timetable for management at Appendix 5 to the report; and

(5)          noted the letter of support from the Metropolitan Police Service at Appendix 1 to the report.

 

OPTIONS & ALTERNATIVES CONSIDERED

An alternative is to continue tackling ASB in the uncovered wards ‘as is’ without using PSPO powers. There is strong public support for the introduction of such powers. These powers are currently in use in large parts of the Borough, and in line with the commitment to tenure-neutral provision of ASB services, this approach is not recommended.
