New Public Space Protection Order for alcohol control
Following Cabinet approval on 16 November, Thanet District Council’s new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for alcohol control has now taken effect.
This PSPO replaces the Designated Public Places Order relating to alcohol control, which expired in October 2017, due to the introduction of new legislation.
This PSPO restricts people carrying and consuming alcohol if they are, or it is suspected that they could cause anti-social behaviour, when asked not to do so by an authorised officer, within a designated boundary of the urban areas of the Thanet district.
Cllr Fairbrass, Cabinet member for Community Safety and Environmental Services, said:
“This PSPO is designed to give council officers greater ability to tackle alcohol related anti-social behaviour, in the interests of the wider community, residents, local businesses and visitors to the area.”
“It will help deter street drinking and anti-social behaviour by reinforcing the council’s zero tolerance approach in this respect and in turn encourage positive behaviour to improve our local environment.”
