Residents can now have their say on Public Space Protection Orders

A number of Newark and Sherwood’s Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) will come to an end in 2024 and as such, a review of the PSPOs and the related information is being undertaken, and the Council is reaching out to residents, businesses, partner agencies and wider groups to hear their thoughts.

To comment on the proposed list of orders and their content you can fill out the survey which will be open to responses from Monday 4th March, until Sunday 14th April 2024:

Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO’s) help preserve and protect the community and local areas and are designed to promote responsible behaviour and restrict behaviour that is anti-social, in parks and other public open spaces. Anyone found in violation of a PSPO could be faced with a fine.

The public consultation is being undertaken in two stages, the first stage survey is open to the public for a six-week period allowing them to comment on the proposed list of orders and their content. Following this the second stage survey will be created using the comments from the first and once again open to the public to comment on before the results are presented to Cabinet for final approval. The second stage of public consultation is due to go live by Monday 13th May 2024.

Residents will be updated on the survey via the District Council’s social media channels and website.
