City Centre PSPO Public Consultation

1. Public Consultation

City of Lincoln Council is reviewing its St Peters Passage Public Spaces Protection Order

You may be aware that in October 2018 City of Lincoln Council introduced a Public Spaces Protect Order (PSPO) for the gating of St Peters Passage. 

What is a PSPO?

A PSPO is a tool that was brought into effect by the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. Local authorities can use them to stop problem behaviour or to get people to do good behaviours.

What does the current PSPO do?

The current PSPO allows for the gating of St Peters Passage so that the public can no longer access this passageway.

What area does the PSPO cover?

The PSPO applies to the area shown on the attached map (please see Appendix A: Street Plan).

When does the PSPO expire?

The PSPO was put in place for 3 years. The 3-year period will end 29th October 2021. It is therefore required that we review the PSPO.

What information do we want from you?

As part of the review process we are seeking your views on the following points;

  1. Do you have any information in support of the proposed PSPO?
  2. Do you have any concerns or objections to the proposed PSPO?
  3. If St Peters Passage was re-opened would you use it to walk through?
  4. Do you believe that gating St Peters Passage has had a negative impact on other areas? If so please provide details.

When does the consultation open and close?

  • The consultation period will be open over four weeks starting on Monday 2nd August 2021
  • The consultation period will close at 5pm on Monday 20th September 2021
