About this Consultation

Under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council is proposing to put in place a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO).

The council are proposing this covers;

~ alcohol related anti-social behaviour
~ begging related anti-social behaviour
~ the feeding of gulls
~ cycling restrictions

in specific areas in Weymouth and Portland.

Designated Public Place Orders

The Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 allowed councils to designate an area where it was satisfied that a nuisance, associated with drinking alcohol, was being caused to the public in that area. These are called Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs). The effect of a DPPO is that it is an offence if a person fails to comply with a request from an authorised person (e.g. a police officer) to stop drinking any intoxicating liquor and/or fails to hand over to that officer any containers of such liquor in the designated area.

From October 2017 all DPPOs currently in place in Weymouth and Portland will become PSPOs. PSPOs will be enforceable by a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of £100 However, we wish to consult the public on potential changes to the content of the PSPO and the spaces the order will relate to.

Have your say

We consider the views of residents, visitors and businesses to be important in this matter and a period of consultation on the new Order will run for 12 weeks finishing at 5pm on Wednesday 8 November 2017.

We welcome your views. To have your say, please complete this short questionnaire, it should take about 15 minutes.

The results will be used to guide councillors’ decision making for PSPOs relating to anti-social behaviour across the borough. Results will be published on the council's website after the closing date.
