Designated Public Place Order (DPPOs)

Designated Public Places Orders (DPPOs) help local authorities deal with the problems of alcohol related anti-social behaviour in public places. This order is not a total ban on drinking alcohol in public places but makes it an offence to carry on drinking when asked to stop by a constable or authorised officer.

The DPPOs areas for Charnwood are:

  • Loughborough Town Centre/Ashby Road Area
  • Thurmaston
  • Birstal

When might an officer ask me to stop drinking?

A police officer will have the power to ask you to stop drinking alcohol in a public place if in their opinion:

  •  You are creating disorder or behaving in an anti-social manner
  •  You are likely to behave in an anti-social or disorderly way
