Rochdale Borough Council is looking to vary and extend the duration of the current PSPO in Rochdale town centre and wants your views.
Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in an area that negatively affects the local community's quality of life by imposing restrictions on certain antisocial behaviours.
The PSPO in Rochdale town centre was introduced in 2018 after a period of consultation.
This PSPO expires in July 2021. The council is proposing to vary and extend the current PSPO. As part of this consultation process you can give your views.
Please fill out the survey on the council website www.rochdale.gov.uk/RochdaleTownCentrePSPO that is open to anyone.
If you would like the survey in an alternative format you can pick one up from reception at Number One Riverside, Smith Street, OL16 1XU.
The existing PSPO prohibits the following activities:
- Drinking alcohol on the street.
- Driving or using a car in an antisocial manner.
- Obstructing the highway or loitering.
- Antisocial parking.
- Using a skateboard in the restricted area shown in red on the map above.
- Begging on the street.
- Using a bicycle, scooter or other wheeled vehicle in a way that may cause nuisance, alarm or distress.
- Commercial and charity collections and soliciting for money in the street without authorisation from the council.
