Alcohol related anti-social behaviour - Public Space Protection Order

Wyre Council wishes to seek opinion as to whether or not it should renew its existing Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in relation to alcohol related anti-social behaviour.

The PSPO was originally created as a Designated Public Place Order under the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001, now has effect under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 and covers certain public spaces within the towns of: 
  • Cleveleys,
  • Fleetwood,
  • Garstang and
  • Poulton-le-Fylde

The effect of the Order is that an individual can be prosecuted or given a fixed penalty notice of up to £100, if they fail to surrender alcohol when asked to do so by an officer of the Police. 

The Order does NOT make it illegal to carry alcohol or to drink in a public place as long as drinking is done responsibly. The Order is therefore only used when necessary to tackle alcohol related anti-social behaviour, and no offence is committed if individuals comply with a request to stop drinking and / or dispose of alcohol when asked to do so by the Police. 

Maps illustrating the public areas and street covered by the existing Order are provided via the link below. It should be noted that the order has no effect within premises suitably licensed for the supply of alcohol. 

This consultation will close at 17:00 hours on Friday 13 November, 2020.
