The Community Trigger

More information

There are already seven ward based “controlled drinking zone” Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in place across North East Lincolnshire. In January 2017, our public consultation identified anti-social behaviour as the public’s number one concern and as having the largest negative impact on a community or neighbourhood if left unaddressed.

Following on from the Cabinet decision in October 2017 to support a wider intelligence led, Placed Based approach around introducing new PSPOs in defined geographical areas covering a wider range of prohibitions where evidentially appropriate,  a further nine PSPOs have been introduced in North East Lincolnshire. These include seven PSPOs to curb recurring and unreasonable anti-social behaviour within small defined areas, and two borough wide PSPOs to cover dog fouling and dog control zones.

If a Police Constable or authorised person witnesses somebody behaving or displaying any behaviour that is prohibited then they can ask them to leave that area and not return within a 24 hour period. The details of the incident will be recorded and sent to the appropriate department within the council. They will then look into the evidence provided and, if appropriate, a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of £100 will be issued. Failure to make payment could result in a fine of up to £1,000 at the Magistrates Court.

The Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for “Cleethorpes Seafront to North Sea Lane incorporating Cleethorpes Boating Lake and Meridian Point” has been amended to allow residents and visitors to the area to enjoy the public open space without fear of becoming a victim of anti-social behaviour.

The conditions set out in the order covers both sides of Kings Road from the Kingsway Kiosk to its junction with North Sea Lane. The order covers all land on the east side of Kings Road up to the water’s edge but excludes the former Pleasure Island theme park. The order also includes the Meridian Point retail and leisure complex up to its boundary with Cleethorpes Golf Course.

In April 2015 power to control the consumption of alcohol across seven North East Lincolnshire wards: West Marsh, East Marsh, Park, Heneage, Sidney Sussex, Croft Baker and South. The order means that a request can be made to individuals or groups to stop drinking or hand over alcohol if they involved in drinking related anti-social behaviour. If they refuse to do so they could be served with a fixed penalty notice of £100. For more information read our Public Space Protection Order FAQs (PDF)

Quarter 3 = 1st July- 30th September
Quarter 4 = 1st October – 31st December

The Community Protection Warning and Notice are just one of the tools that are used to address a pattern of unacceptable behaviour. Low numbers are not an indication that nothing is being done to address a problem more that a perpetrator is taking notice from an earlier informal warning or is being dealt with by other means.
