Public Consultation For Variation of the Woodston Public Space Protection Order - OCT18/CMDN/43
Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Communities
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The Cabinet Member authorised Peterborough City Council to commence public consultation for the variation of the Woodston Public Space Protection Orders under Section 72 (3) of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014.
Reasons for the decision:
When implemented, Public Space Protection Orders contribute to the Local Authority and the Safer Peterborough Partnership achieving the following objectives:
- Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour and Environmental Crime
- Reduce harm experienced by individuals, families and the community arising from problematic substance abuse.
- Reduce crime experienced by individuals, families and the community associated with problematic substance abuse.
Public Space Protection Orders give more powers to authorised Council officers to tackle anti-social behaviour in the areas most affected, thus improving the quality of life for people who live, work and visit in the proposed areas.
Alternative options considered:
Do nothing and continue with existing order area under the previous DPPO with the single condition of enforcing consumption of alcohol if the officer believes that the individual has or is likely to cause anti-social behaviour. However the opportunity to positively impact on other quality of life issues affecting the wider area of Woodston would be missed and limited under current legislation and policy.
