Release Date: 
Friday, October 5, 2018 - 16:30

 

Corby Borough Council is inviting residents to give their opinion on a review of the PSPO which currently applies to Corby Town Centre and surrounding area.

The PSPO was granted on 14th December 2015 for a period of three years, and the Borough Council are now required to review the Order and apply for a further PSPO in order to keep it in place.

The Order prohibits:

  • Persons to be in possession of open containers with alcohol in, within the area covered by the PSPO
  • Persons not to drink, consume or take intoxicating substances within the area covered by the PSPO
  • Persons not to act in a manner that causes alarm, harassment or distress as a result of consuming alcohol or taking intoxicating substances
  • Persons not to beg within the area covered by the PSPO

These conditions can be enforced by a Police Officer, PCSO and Neighbourhood Wardens.

Corby Borough Council is proposing that the conditions and the area that the Order covers remains the same and that it continues for a period of three years. A copy of the Order and a map showing the area it covers (please see attached) can be seen by members of the public at the One Stop Shop in the Corby Cube, or is available online at www.corby.gov.uk

Residents have until Friday 19th October to put their views forward on the proposals and can do so by visiting https://www.corby.gov.uk/home/housing-and-neighbourhood-services/community-safety/public-spaces-protection-order-town-centr-0 or call 01536 464176.
