Caerphilly Public Space Protection Orders consultation endorsed

Plans to carry out consultation on proposed changes to Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) in the Caerphilly county borough have been endorsed.

Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Environment and Sustainability Scrutiny Committee endorsed plans to undertake a public consultation, during its remote meeting held on 22nd June.

There are currently a number of PSPOs throughout the county borough to address anti-social behaviour and drinking alcohol in a public place.

As part of the consultation, members of the public will be asked to give their views on proposals for the next three years for current PSPOs.  It also includes proposals to vary several existing area and introduce a number of new locations.

Cllr Nigel George, the Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for Public Protection, said “We want to ensure that law-abiding people can use and enjoy our public spaces safely and without fear.  Public Spaces Protection Orders help us do this by regulating specific problem areas that have been identified to us by communities or partner agencies, such as Gwent Police.

The views of members of the public are key in helping us make sure the right areas are targeted and we welcome Scrutiny Committee’s endorsement of our plans to carry out consultation.”
