CONSULTATION is getting underway for a Public Space Protection Order in central Sunderland.

 

The consultation follows a decision of the City Council's Cabinet to look at orders for tackling anti-social behaviour.

 

Proposals are designed to help stop and curb behaviour such as bin raking, alcohol consumption in a public place, dog control, aggressive behaviour connected with begging, plus street trading and unlicensed pedlars.

The City Council's Cabinet, which met on Wednesday 21 September, agreed to begin the consultation on new Public Space Protection Orders.

 

Councillor Harry Trueman, Deputy Leader of Sunderland City Council, said: "Before making one of these orders, the council must carry out consultation with the police, the Police and Crime Commissioner, the owners and occupiers of any land included in the order which is not in council ownership, and wider consultation with representatives from the community.

 

"It's important people tell the council what they think of about the plans. The council has to update how it and others look after our city and help make it a cleaner, greener and safer place for all.

 

"The Public Protection Orders could be part of an update for how we look after all our neighbourhoods."
