Overview

In July 2018, further to consultation Luton Council introduced the Town Centre Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).

The Council has the power to make a PSPO in accordance with the 2014 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act, which is intended to deal with any particular nuisances or problems in a defined area that are detrimental to the local community’s quality of life. This is achieved by imposing restrictions on the use of that area with the aim of stopping individuals or groups committing anti-social behaviour in public spaces.

The current order applies to a range of anti-social behaviour including street drinking, begging, urinating/defecating, dog fouling/dog control, and spitting.

The PSPO allows the Council to introduce measures or fixed penalty notices to address these issues and help improve the quality of the area for people to enjoy.

The current PSPO is due to expire on the 5th July 2021 and Luton Council is presently seeking further views from local residents, businesses, people working in or visiting the Town Centre on the proposal to extend the PSPO for a further three years and include an area in Manor Road , through a consultation survey.

A final decision on this matter is anticipated in June 2021 and will be announced at the appropriate time.

The survey is anonymous. All responses will be kept confidential. Deadline is 23rd March 2021.
