Public consultations are now open on the extension of Fylde Council’s alcohol control and dog control public space protection orders (PSPOs). 

The consultations offer residents the opportunity to have their say on whether these PSPOs, introduced to help curb antisocial behaviour and ensure that Fylde’s public spaces remain enjoyable for all, should be kept in place for another three years. 

In addition, the Council would like to hear public views on the proposal to authorise council officers, police constables, and police community support officers to issue fixed penalty notices and confiscate alcohol from anti-social street drinkers in the ten areas of the district covered by the order. 

Cllr Michelle Morris, Lead Member for Customer & Operational Services, said: “Fylde’s public spaces are wonderful amenities for visitors and residents alike, and the great majority are respectful of these places and the right of others to enjoy them fully without being exposed to antisocial behaviour. 

“These PSPOs are of great help to our officers when they need to provide advice to the public about how best to respect their surroundings and others, and we are keen to hear people’s thoughts. I would encourage everyone to share their views with the Council via the online consultation on our website.” 

Both consultations will close on Wednesday 21 June at 12pm, and the feedback received will inform the Council’s decision on the future of the PSPOs. 

The consultations, along with further information about each, can be found on Fylde Council’s consultation page here:
