Consultation PSPO

With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now affecting many areas of our services to the residents and businesses of Amber Valley, we are keen to keep you right up-to-date with the changes we are being forced to make. Read more about your council services.

The council is proposing to extend a number of public spaces protection orders (PSPO) that were originally made in 2017. The council is seeking the views of residents and visitors to the borough on the proposed extension of those PSPOs.

PSPO is a provision created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 which intends to deal with a particular nuisance issue within a defined area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life. This is done by imposing conditions on the use of a defined area which applies to everyone. A failure to comply with a PSPO could lead to enforcement action being taken by either the council or partner agencies. PSPO’s last for a period of three years and can be extended for a further 3-year period. The original PSPO’s were made on 20 October 2017 and the council consider that two of these PSPO’s require extending. The council is currently seeking views from residents and visitors to the borough on the proposed extension of these PSPO’s.

A period of consultation on the proposed extension of the PSPOs opens on Monday 17 August 2020 and is open for comments until 12 midnight on Monday 28 September 2020. The council is inviting comments from the Police and Crime Commissioner, the land owners, representatives from Derbyshire Police, and views from local residents.

Any comments or representations received after 12:00 midnight on 28 September 2020 will not be taken into account. A decision will be made by the council after the consultation has closed.

Please use the drop down menu below to view each individual PSPO and supporting documents. You are then invited to complete the consultation form with your comments.

After taking a look at the PSPOs and affected areas above, we would welcome your comments or questions by using our online consultation form.
