Environmental consultation takes to the streets
A TASK group of Rugby Borough councillors will be talking to Christmas shoppers this weekend to find out how the council could use Public Space Protection Orders to tackle nuisance behaviour.
Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) are already in force in Rugby to deal with street drinking and dog fouling, but now the task group want to know if there are other behaviours that residents would like the council to tackle.
The consultation is looking to find out if problems such as camping on public spaces, motor cycling or horse riding on public footpaths, or drinking and smoking near children's play areas cause a nuisance to residents, and whether a PSPO could help.
Councillors from the task group will be on Chapel Street near Costa Coffee on Saturday 9 December, between 11am and 1pm.
The consultation and more information about PSPOs is also available online at www.rugby.gov.uk/pspo.
