Minutes:

Council was requested to enact the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) to prohibit car cruising events on the public highway and other land to which the public has access.

 

RESOLVED that

a)    a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO), as outlined at Appendix 1 to the report, be enacted on or after the 27th April, 2018; the PSPO to prohibit people from engaging in, encouraging or assisting in the carrying out of any ‘car cruising’ events on the public highway and other land to which the public has access as detailed within the Order;

 

b)    it be reconfirmed that appropriate awareness raising takes place including signage at appropriate locations within the mapped area.

 

Reason:

Council previously approved enacting a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) including approval for the required associated signage and publicity.  The position regarding the need for the PSPO remains unchanged which enables primarily the Police to utilise additional enforcement tools if people engage in, encourage or assist in the carrying out of any ‘car cruising’ events on the public highway and other land to which the public has access within the mapped area.
