Further crackdown on trouble in city

More Public Spaces Protection Orders are being introduced in Peterborough from today in a bid to clamp down on trouble.

Millfield, New England, parts of Eastfield, Lower Bridge Street and the Embankment will be covered.

The PSPO will mean that anyone caught littering, spitting, urinating or defecating in public will receive an £80 fine in the form of a fixed penalty notice (FPN). Other offences include failing to throw away or hand over alcohol being consumed in a public place, or failing to leave an area if you are thought to be causing harassment or distress, if asked by an authorised officer.

This is the second PSPO to be introduced in Peterborough which gives council officers additional powers to help tackle anti-social behaviour.

Formally introduced on 23 June, PES officers have been on the ground educating and engaging local residents, businesses and community groups about the order.
