NELC Proposed Public Space Protection Orders

By | Consultations | No Comments

Deadline 28th November 2018

Public Spaces Protection Order Consultation

Residents and businesses are encouraged to take part in a consultation on measures to tackle anti-social behaviour.

In October 2014 the Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 was introduced. As part of this legislation comes the introduction of the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO). This enables Local Authorities to impose prohibitions or requirements to specified areas to enable law abiding citizens to enjoy public areas without being affected by anti-social behaviour.

The aim of the proposed PSPO is to address a number of specific concerns related to vehicle nuisance and anti – social behaviour and will hopefully deter the behaviour and enable Officers from Humberside Police and all Authorised persons to deal more robustly with offenders at the time of occurrence.

The consultation period will be open for 28 days from the 1st November 2018 and gives people the chance to have their say. The council plans to introduce the PSPO to cover Cleethorpes seafront and town centre, Grimsby town centre and the following parks of Peoples Park, Haverstoe Park, Sussex Recreation Ground and Cleethorpes Country Park. A Borough wide PSPO is also being proposed to curb dog fouling and control dogs under certain circumstances.

If a PSPO is introduced, it would mean that the following acts would be prohibited;

  1. Returning to the Town Centre (or other designated area parks) within 24 hours after being requested to leave by an authorised officer due to them behaving in a manner causing or likely to cause harassment, alarm, distress, nuisance or annoyance;
  2. Behaving in a manner that is violent, or threatening, or intimidating, or distressing or annoying;
  3. Whilst under the influence of alcohol or any other substance being a threat or a risk to their own personal safety, or the safety of others;
  4. Using foul or abusive language (directed at or towards a third person);
  5. Playing loud music (likely to cause public annoyance);
  6. Creating excessive noise;
  7. Climbing onto any structure or building other than for a lawful purpose;
  8. Behaving in a manner likely to cause damage or significant risk of damage to property;

Grimsby Town Centre Only

  1. Ride a pedal cycle in such a manner to cause annoyance to the foot passengers on Victoria Street from its junction with George Street up to the underpass of Fredrick ward way and taking in The Bull Ring Lane Footpath from Victoria Street to Bethlehem Street;

Cleethorpes only

  1. Driving or using a vehicle inconsiderately (which is deemed to be anti-social) ;
  2. Sounding a vehicle horn (as to cause public annoyance);
  3. Depositing litter from or in the vicinity of a motor vehicle.

North East Lincolnshire Council value your comments on the proposal and invites you to contribute to the consultation process. If you wish to make comment to the proposed Order you should please do so in writing, stating the reasons by email to saferstronger@nelincs.gov.uk

When considering your response I would be grateful if you could provide, where possible, any evidence you have to support your representations so that we can take this into consideration before making a final decision.

You can also visit the councils consultation page on the website at  https://www.nelincs.gov.uk/consultation-and-surveys/have-your-say/ where there are details of the proposed PSPO.

Details of the decision will be published in the local media and further information will be available on the Council’s website.

If you require any further clarification or information you can call telephone 01472 324981.


Voluntary Sector use of technology – a survey

By | Consultations | No Comments

The Centre for Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST) know that small voluntary organisations are facing a number of challenges: increased demand for services; competition for fewer resources; changes in clients’ access and use of services, including new behaviours for searching and finding support; growing expectations of services being available online and competition from online-only providers.

They want to better understand these challenges and to know how organisations like yours are, or could be, using tech tools and techniques to help make services more accessible, relevant and efficient.

This project is a collaboration between the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) and CAST, with support from an advisory panel of grantmakers including Comic Relief, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Lloyds Bank Foundation and Tudor Trust.

Mandating calorie labelling in the out-of-home sector

By | Consultations | No Comments

Deadline 7th December

Currently, nearly one in four children in England are obese or overweight by the time they start primary school, and this rises to one in three by the time they leave primary school.  Obese children are more likely to become obese adults, and obesity in adulthood increases an individual’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver disease and a number of cancers.

According to research, it is likely that eating out frequently, including eating takeaway meals, contributes to this gradual overconsumption of calories.

To make sure that people have access to clear and accurate information about the calorie content of the food and drink that they and their families are eating when dining out, Government intend to introduce legislation to make calorie labelling compulsory in the out-of-home sector. This includes, for example, restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways, as well as online businesses that sell food or drink for takeaway or home delivery that is ready to be eaten or drunk.
