Public Consultation

The City of Wolverhampton Council is consulting on proposals to implement a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) which will authorise Police to require a person to stop drinking and surrender alcohol where Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) is occurring or is likely to occur.  The PSPO would provide a continuation of existing current Police powers across the city which were introduced via a Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) in April 2013. The proposals would include a street drinking ban for St Peter's and Park wards to include the City Centre, to provide a more robust response within these locations.   

We would welcome your views and comments on the proposals for the PSPO. For further information, please click here: Frequently Asked Questions

Please note the consultation closes at midnight Friday 17th February 2017

Question Title

* 2. Does this locality suffer from disorder, nuisance and/or annoyance associated with street drinking?

Question Title

* 3. The PSPO would provide a continuation of existing city-wide discretionary powers held by the Police to request the surrender of alcohol where anti-social behaviour is occurring or is likely to occur as a result of alcohol consumption. 

Would you be in support of Police retaining this discretionary power?

Question Title

* 4. There is an opportunity for the PSPO to include an outright street drinking ban in St Peter's and Park wards. The selection of these locations has been informed by data on the existing use of Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) powers and reports of alcohol related anti-social behaviour in these locations. This would not affect the activity of legitimate licenced premises or organised events within these areas.

If you live, work or visit these areas of the city would you support the introduction of a street drinking ban within these locations?
