(0 votes)

Spelthorne is consulting with residents about its proposals to introduce a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) on the misuse of public land. The consultation will conclude on 31 January 2024, and you can respond online via: spelthorne.inconsult.uk/PSPOmisuseofland/consultationHome

This Council has been listening to residents' concerns and the overarching aims of this PSPO is to tackle issues and behaviours which are unacceptable and impact on our communities across the Borough. The PSPO proposal includes:

  • a ban on tents or similar structures being on public land to prevent littering and using the space as a toilet
  • ban any device for cooking e.g. barbeques, in any our parks and open because of the hazardous impact to our environment
  • an exclusion zone where taxis and private hire vehicles using residential areas will not be allowed to park for Heathrow to cover the entirety of Stanwell Moor, and parts of Stanwell worst affected

Currently, the Council has limited powers to deal with these issues. If a PSPO is in place the Joint Enforcement Team will be able to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for non-compliance with repeat offenders risking prosecution. The team would have discretion and, for example, would signpost rough sleepers towards appropriate assistance.

Residents can read more details about the PSPO and respond online via: spelthorne.inconsult.uk/PSPOmisuseofland/consultationHome
