Consultation on public space protection order

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at

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 will run until Friday, 7 August, for people who live or work in Loughborough to have their say.

The consultation closes on Friday, 7 August.

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.
