Under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014, Peterborough City Council proposes to vary the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for Woodston to expand the area to encompass a wider area that is experiencing quality of life issues. In doing so we are conducting a 30 day consultation with members of the public, councillors and interested parties as well as seeking approval from the Police & Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
The existing order for Woodston was previously a Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) which converted to a PSPO in October 2017 under the 2014 Act.
Peterborough City Council’s Prevention and Enforcement Service proposes to vary the Woodston PSPO to improve the quality of life for those living and working in the area by extending the order to a wider area to encompass more residential areas and open spaces. The council also proposes to implement further conditions which can be found in the draft order document(see right).
The existing designated area (dotted line) includes Oundle Road Recreation Ground, Tower Street, Grove Street, Community Centre, etc.
The proposed designated area would include the existing area plus the river bank, across to the railway line, down to London Rd/New Rd, up Palmerston Road, Earls Spencer Court, Wharf Rd, etc.
Paper copies of the consultation survey, map and proposed order will be available at the Town Hall and Sand Martin House, or can be posted on request.
