PSPO1 is due to expire at midnight on 10 July 2022.

It was therefore appropriate both to review and assess:

  • the necessity of the Existing Restrictions within PSPO1, and
  • the need to renew, and vary PSPO1, to include the Existing Restrictions as well as to extend the Drinking Control Area (forming part of the Restricted Area) and introduce the proposed Additional Restrictions within the Restricted Area.

The purpose of the consultation was to obtain responses to the questions provided in the survey, which helped us inform the final recommendations to Cabinet in those two respects.
