Bolton Council is seeking a Public Spaces Protection Order [PSPO] to allow for lockable gates to be installed across Back Market Street. This is being pursued in response to repeated instances of crime and anti-social behaviour – primarily fly tipping – occurring at this location.

Businesses and residents who occupy properties directly attached to the proposed gated route would be given keys to allow them to open the gates. The Council and emergency services would also hold keys.

The Council has to be sure that this is the right thing to do, so as a local resident, land or property owner, someone who works in the area, or other interested party, it's very important that you give us your views to help us decide whether to go ahead with this scheme or not.

The owners of Back Market Street will be required to fund the purchase and ongoing maintenance of the gates.
