Have your say on Lancaster’s Public Space Protection Order - ended 5pm November 2019
Lancaster City Council asked local residents and businesses for their views on the success of a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) which has been in force in Lancaster City Centre for the last 3 years. PSPOs were granted under section 59 of the Antisocial Behaviour (ASB), Crime and Policing Act 2014 to allow authorised council officers and the police to introduce new measures to tackle antisocial behaviour and to improve public safety in a defined area such as Lancaster City Centre. Before it can be renewed, the council consulted with the public and local businesses about how well it has worked and if any adjustments need to be made. Currently those responses are being considered. More information can be found on the Public Spaces Protection Order webpage
