Notice of Motion


Conservative Group



This Committee,


1)    Notes that this Committee allowed many the City’s Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) to expire in 2019 and has never replaced them;


2)    Further notes that this has left the Council out of step with neighbouring authorities, which have retained a broad range of PSPOs to help boost community safety.


3)    Expresses concern that the Council is not using all the tools at its disposal to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour and is developing a reputation for being a soft touch on crime.


4)    Calls for an officer report that examines the range of PSPOs neighbouring authorities are using and which could also be implemented in Brighton & Hove to improve community safety.
