Have your say on the proposal to extend the Bolton Town Centre PSPO
The current PSPO for Bolton town centre is due to expire in February 2022. Bolton Council propose to extend the PSPO for another three years [the maximum allowed by law], keeping all the current restrictions in place.
Public Spaces Protection Orders are intended to deal with a particular nuisance by imposing restrictions on certain antisocial behaviours. The PSPO is designed to make sure that people can use and enjoy public spaces in Bolton town centre without worrying about anti-social behaviour.
This public consultation forms part of a review we are undertaking of the PSPO to ensure the prohibitions within the order remain proportionate and effective. Consultation responses will be used alongside other information to help the council decide whether to extend the Town Centre PSPO or not.
Please read the supporting documents for full details of the proposed PSPO before giving your views on the proposed extension.
