Anti-social behaviour - what's YOUR view?
News just in from Suffolk Coastal ….
“Suffolk Coastal is asking local people for their views on anti-social behaviour controls.
Over the last year, the Council has introduced a number of Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs). These have largely been to replace existing bylaws across the District.
During this process, Suffolk Coastal has been in discussion with the Police to review the PSPOs and is now questioning whether they are still needed.
Nicole Rickard, Head of Communities, said: “There are currently ten PSPOs in place in Suffolk Coastal. After recently reviewing these, we have found no evidence to suggest that they are actually needed because there are other, better ways to deal with the issues that they are trying to tackle. Therefore, before the Council makes any decisions on this issue, a public consultation has been launched to ask the public for their view.”
The consultation is running until 1 May 2019 and the Council wants to hear the views of local residents and businesses. Have your say by completing the short survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TVCLQGF.
All consultation responses will be given due consideration by the Council before any decisions are made.
The final decision will rest with the new East Suffolk Council which will be in place from April 1st 2019 and will be scheduled for consideration at a Cabinet meeting after the closure of the consultation period.”
