Hemswell Public Space Protection Order 2021

A formal approach by the Parish Council in 2017 led to a consultation on a adopting a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) which would ban activities such as a build up of litter, damage to green spaces and animals including horses being kept in public areas and leave those causing problems liable for a fixed penalty notice or prosecution. This consultation was to see how we go forward since the current PSPO is coming to an end.


The consultation closed on 29 April 2021 and thank you to everyone who took part. The proposed new order and the FAQs are attached to this page and the final report will be published once the results have been analysed and it has been through our committee process.
