Burnley Council to hold consultation on town centre Public Space Protection Order
Burnley residents are being asked for their views on a Burnley town centre Public Space Protection Order.
The PSPO that covers Burnley town centre is due for renewal later this year and, following work by council officers and partners from key stakeholders, the existing PSPO has been reviewed.
The order covers incidents such as begging on the streets, the misuse of skateboards, bicycles and scooters, so-called ‘chugging’, as well as prohibited areas for youths after a certain time.
Any person in the Prohibition Area between 11pm and 5am, being unable to provide evidence that they are over the age of 16, must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Burnley Council would like the public’s views and thoughts on the proposed changes to the order.

A public consultation will run throughout the month.
The PSPO gives council and police officers added powers to deal with anti-social behaviour in the town centre and make it safer for everyone to enjoy.
