Public Space Protection Order (PSPO)

BCP Council is asking for your views on the potential introduction of three Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in our coastal areas, and some of our open spaces, highways and car parks.

The PSPOs are proposed because during the summer months a number of negative behaviours presented by some individuals have impacted on our environment and the enjoyment of our beaches and open spaces by residents and visitors. These behaviours have required significant additional resource to manage.

Have your say

Before making any decisions we are asking for your views on:

  • whether you support or do not support the introduction of the three PSPOs

  • the proposed geographical areas where the PSPOs would apply (the detail can be viewed on the map)

  • the behaviours that would be restricted within the proposed PSPO area

  • the time when barbeques would be allowed in coastal areas and

  • whether we should completely ban the use of disposable barbeques in coastal areas

Please read the Consultation Document that provides information about the proposed PSPOs and take part in the consultation by

  • completing a survey and
  • look at the proposed PSPO areas on the map and let us know if you think any other areas should be covered by one of the PSPOs.

If you have any questions or require a large print copy of the documents, or in an alternative language, please email asbteam@bcpcouncil.gov.uk giving your name, address and telephone number.

The consultation closes at 11:59pm on 19 February 2023.
