Last chance to have your say on Abingdon Public Space Protection Order

Published on:

02 Feb 2017

This is your last chance to have your say on the proposed Public Spaces Protection Order for Abingdon. Under new legislation Police in Abingdon could get new powers to fine people who cause vehicle related noise nuisance. 

This follows concern over incidents in the town’s car parks where the revving of engines, loud bass stereos and screeching tyres have created a disturbance for people living nearby, and caused some residents to feel intimidated. 

To help tackle the problem, Vale of White Horse District Council is proposing a new Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).  This would allow police to fine people who cause vehicle related noise nuisance. It also includes existing powers to help police tackle alcohol related anti-social behaviour.  

The consultation closes at midnight on Monday 6th February so this is your last chance to have your say. For further details please click here.
