Please let us have your views on our proposals for a public space protection order to tackle anti-social behaviour in Birmingham city centre.

The prohibitions within the order have been put into place due to overwhelming reports made to the Police and the Council that include urination, defecation, verbal abuse, groups and gangs displaying harassing and intimidating behaviours, begging, substance misuse and graffiti.
