    Members considered the report and noted that a public spaces protection order for alcohol control would be in line with two of the Council’s corporate priorities. These priorities were a clean and welcoming environment, and supporting neighbourhoods.


    The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 provided the Council with new powers to manage anti-social behaviour where alcohol was a contributory factor, through the introduction of a public spaces protection order.


    Councillor Campbell and Councillor Savage spoke under council procedure rule 20.1


    Councillor L Fairbrass proposed, Councillor Rev. Piper seconded and Cabinet agreed:


    “To exercise its powers under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to introduce a public space protection order controlling alcohol where it is having or likely to have a detrimental effect on the wider community;


    To delegate any minor amendment of the public space protection order to the Chief Executive.”
