Public Spaces Protection Order - Marble Arch
Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) - Marble Arch
Start: Friday 12th May 2017
End: Sunday 6th August 2017
The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 gives local authorities and the police more effective powers to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB). These powers include Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) which are designed to stop all individuals or a specific class of persons committing ASB in a public space including the gating of a highway.
It is up to each local authority to determine which behaviours they include in a PSPO providing those activities:
- have had, or a likely to have, a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality.
- are, or are likely to be, persistent or continuing in nature.
- are, or are likely to be, unreasonable.
- justify the restrictions imposed.
Northampton Borough Council is proposing gating the highway known as Marble Arch (runs from Barrack Road to Ash Street - see map) to help tackle street drinking, fly tipping and anti-social behaviour. An alternative route, known as Temple Bar, is also marked on the map. The gating would be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We would like to hear your views on the proposed PSPO and invite you to complete the following questionnaire. This is your opportunity to have your say.
