Public Spaces Protection Order 2023

Have your say on the proposed PSPO for Ashfield.

Public Spaces 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 quality of life. A PSPO works by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. They are designed to ensure that the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces without experiencing antisocial behaviour. A PSPO remains in place for a period of 3 years unless discharged by the Local Authority.

Public Spaces Protection Order being proposed is intended to restrict public access in the below locations:

  1. Between Spruce Grove and Beacon Drive, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  2. Between Bentinck Street and Bramley Court, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  3. Between Downing Street and North Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  4. Rear of 34-37 Rockwood Walk, Hucknall, Nottinghamshire
  5. Adjacent 40 Rosewood Drive, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  6. Between Spruce Grove and Poplar Avenue, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  7. Between Welbeck Street and Portland Close, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  8. Between Bramley Court and Sutton Lawn, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.

It was reported that there are a number of issues of anti-social behaviour within these locations which is having a direct impact on the local community and those who reside in, work and visit on Ashfield. It is proposed to close and restrict access of the strip of land in these areas to minimise issues in these areas.

This consultation closes on 5th January 2023
