Mendip District Council is currently consulting on its proposals to introduce a Public Space Protection Order within the area.
These are new powers introduced as part of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 and will replace existing Designated Public Space Orders that relate to alcohol-related anti-social behaviour. Currently all of the five Mendip towns have these orders, dog control and gating orders.
The link below takes you to the Mendip District Council website which provides the background and full proposals of orders being considered for Mendip – and each town – which will be interest to local businesses and organisations.
Completed surveys will form part of a committee report for the council to consider implementing these orders.
