Consultation to seek views on the proposed transfer of existing Orders to Public Space Protection Orders
7 July 2017A public consultation on the proposed transfer of Orders to Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs), relating to control of dogs and consumption of alcohol, is currently open and will close on 23 July 2017.
Councillor Nicole Meardon, Cabinet Member for Children and Families, said: “We are keen for as many people as possible to have their say on the proposed transfer and encourage you to take part in the consultation.
“PSPOs can be used to regulate activities in particular public places that can have a detrimental effect on the local community. They can help by giving local councils and local police additional powers to tackle anti-social behaviour in specific locations and they support the Council aim to have the cleanest, safest and most sustainable neighbourhoods in the country.” www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/DogsAndAlcoholOrders

This will ensure that the new legislation does not change or limit the existing powers and restrictions in place.

The outcome of the public consultation will be considered by Cabinet in Autumn 2017.
