Consultation on the public spaces protection order for passageways leading from Picton Road, Bishopgate Street and Macdonald Street

Consultation on the public spaces protection order for passageways leading from Picton Road, Bishopgate Street and Macdonald Street

Start date: 4th December 2018
End date: 18th December 2018

The council is considering making a Public Spaces Protection Order in the Picton area of Liverpool. The order, if made, would maintain the current closure of the above alleyways.

This would mean that access to these alleys would be restricted and that any person who does not comply with the order would be committing an offence punishable by a fine.

The making of the order is being proposed because the council considers that if it was not then activities such as anti social behaviour, fly tipping and arson would take place on the footpath and this would be likely to have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality.
