Croydon Safer Partnership (CSP) are currently developing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO). A PSPO gives police and the local authority new powers to tackle certain ASB (anti-social behaviour) in designated areas under the new Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Behaviour Act (2014.
Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a particular area that is detrimental to the local community’s qualify of life, by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone.
The first PSPO planned will be in Croydon town centre. The Council is conducting an engagement exercise to establish what behaviours people think are an issue (if at all) in Croydon town centre, before they go out to consult.
Individuals and organisations are encouraged to complete the online engagement questionnaire, which closes on 19 August.
You can complete the questionnaire here: www.croydon.gov.uk/pspo
