Summary

Public Consultation required for Alcohol Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to extend, and vary the Order to include the whole of Bletchley and Stantonbury Parish. The Order is due to expire in October 2021.

In September 2020, the Council made a formal decision to,  extend this for one year subject to a public consultation in 2021.

The Council is proposing that the Order remains in place for a further three years.

Purpose

The PSPO is not a ban on drinking in public places, but is in place to tackle anti-social behaviour connected with drinking alcohol.  The PSPO will not affect licensed premises.

The Consultation will allow the Council to seek the views of the public, who live, visit, or work in Milton Keynes, especially in those areas where the PSPO is in place, or affected by the variation of the Order.  These views,  along with the evidence provided by the police, will determine whether the Order is extended for three years and whether the variation will take place.

The views will then be submitted and considered before a formal decision is made.
