Public Space Protection Order - Have your say

council news

Public consultations have opened on the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) that covers Rotherham Town Centre and Clifton Park, and the borough-wide order on dogs.

The two orders, that deal with anti-social behaviour and dog fouling, are due to expire in September 2023. It is proposed that new PSPO’s will be made around both issues depending on the consultation responses and evidence.

Share your views on the orders before 6 August here.
