(Report of Director of Central Services)


The report provided details of the proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for the Borough, including details of Borough-wide restrictions and restrictions for particular geographical areas.  Annex 2 of the report set out the proposed PSPO, including two new proposed restrictions related to no unauthorised drones (unmanned aerial surveillance platforms) on Borough Council land and keeping dogs on a lead in closed churchyards.

The proposed Public Spaces Protection Order, as set out in Annex 2 of the report and summarised above, be circulated for public consultation.
