Has alcohol related anti-social behaviour declined in your area in the past year?
That is one of the questions posed as a consultation seeks responses on Public Space Protection Orders in Oulton Broad and Lowestoft.
People are being asked to have their say on the existing Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) which prohibit drinking alcohol in public within the restricted area of a PSPO.
The PSPOs are currently in place in the Harbour and Kirkley wards of Lowestoft and in Oulton Broad.
Introduced under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, the PSPOs replaced Designated Public Place Orders (DPPO).
PSPOs can be used to deal with existing problems and problems that are likely to arise in the future.
With people’s views being sought, an East Suffolk Council spokesman said: “A consultation is currently under way, looking for your comments about these PSPOs.”
With the consultation ending this Friday, August 14, visit www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/5GF8KX2
