Your views sought on anti-social behaviour crackdown

Published11th September 2018

The public is being asked their views on a proposed new crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

Ipswich Borough Council’s Executive has decided to go out to consultation on an extension of Public Spaces Protection Orders – bringing together a range of enforcement measures.

Previous orders dealt with street drinking but, after working closely with Suffolk Police, the Council wants to extend them to deal with loitering by gangs, drug use, anti-social vehicle use, dog fouling and defecating in public.

The Council believes the new orders will assist enforcement by its own team and police officers and help reassure residents that action is being taken against anti-social behaviour.

The consultation begins on Tuesday 11th September and finish on Tuesday 9th October. Please go to www.ipswich.gov.uk/PSPOconsultation to take part in the survey. The findings will be published later in the year when Executive will consider the proposals again.
