Public Space Protection Order consultation

Public Space Protection Order consultation

A consultation on a new Public Space Protection Order for Carlisle is now underway.

The new Carlisle City Council legal order aims to Keep Carlisle Clean and maintain the quality of the district’s environment and green spaces so that everyone can enjoy living, working in and visiting Carlisle.

To help the council achieve this, they want to put measures in place to deter anti-social behaviour whilst continuing to ensure that appropriate support is in place to protect some of the most vulnerable people in Carlisle.

A proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) aims to replace two types of orders which are already in place: a Designated Public Place Order (‘DPPO’), and a Dog Control Order. The existing orders place controls on the consumption of alcohol in public spaces and the behaviour of dogs and their owners.

The proposed PSPO will keep these controls in place and will place controls on other types of behaviour.

It is proposed that the PSPO will cover the full Carlisle City Council local authority area.

The ‘new’ behaviours to be addressed under the PSPO are:

  • Challenging anti-social behaviour by groups or individuals in the city centre public spaces and car parks within the district;
  • Smoking, consuming alcohol, drug taking and solvent abuse in play areas; and
  • Dogs excluded from enclosed play areas.

As part of the PSPO we are also introducing the requirement for dogs to be kept on their leads in the following areas:

  • Carlisle Cemetery and Crematorium;
  • Stanwix Cemetery;
  • Upperby Cemetery Manor Road; and
  • Talkin Tarn Country Park (designated area only).

The deadline for public consultation responses is Friday 19 January 2018.
