Consultation on public space protection order

On Sunday September 20 between 4.30-6.30am customers may experience online payment disruptions due to essential maintenance taking place. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, can be found in this news story.

As part of our work to reduce antisocial behaviour and alcohol and drug misuse in Loughborough we have a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) covering the town centre.

The PSPO gives the police powers to ask you to stop drinking in town centre streets, or to confiscate alcohol, if you are causing a nuisance or acting in an antisocial way. They can also use these powers if they think you are likely to do this after drinking.

PSPOs must be reviewed every three years, the existing town centre order expires in October 2020.

As part of our review of the order we want to hear the views of residents and businesses.

A six-week consultation ran from 24 July 2020 until Friday, 7 August 2020 for people who live or work in Loughborough to have their say.

Consultation responses will be reviewed before a report is taken back to the council’s Cabinet to either request an extension or an ending to the PSPO.

If approved, an extended PSPO would be introduced in October 2020 to run until October 2023.
