Have your say on car parks Public Spaces Protection Order

There is currently a Public Spaces Protection Order in place at 21 council-controlled car parks in the Chiltern area – and Buckinghamshire Council is now inviting residents, businesses and anyone with an interest to let us know if it should be extended.

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is a legal power which allows councils to deal with a specific nuisance or problem in a defined area. These are problems that negatively affect the quality of life for local people. The order imposes conditions on the use of that area and these conditions apply to everybody.

The order for the 21 car parks has been in place since 2018 and is due to expire at the end of April 2021. It “prohibits the use of a motor vehicle, or creation of noise from a motor vehicle, or behaviour by a person in a way likely to cause nuisance or annoyance to a member of the public, or a risk of harm, damage or injury to a person or property."

Cllr Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Communities & Public Health, said: “If you are worried about anti-social behaviour in any of these car parks, this consultation is an opportunity to say if you would like the PSPO to remain in place or not. There is also the chance to add any comments that you feel need to be considered.”

The consultation, along with further details about the PSPO, timings, the names of the 21 car parks and maps of their locations can be found at https://yourvoicebucks.citizenspace.com/communities/chiltern-carparks-pspo/

If you need the consultation survey in another format, please contact us at communitysafety.csb@buckinghamshire.gov.uk

The closing date for this consultation is 21 February 2021.

Buckinghamshire Council will review the comments received and make a final decision on the PSPO extensions by the end of April 2021. If agreed, the order will be extended for either one or two further years.

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced a range of new powers designed to address anti-social behaviour. PSPOs are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a particular area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life, by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. They are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.
