Urgent Decision Referral from Communities, Housing and Environment Committee 17 November 2015: Public Spaces Protection Order for Town Centre

Decision:

1)  That the desired outcome of the Decision Referral be endorsed which was as follows:-

“That the Communities, Housing and Environment Committee receive a report setting out a strategic assessment of anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder for the rural areas of the borough and recommended action for reduction of these issues”; and

2)  That the Committee also endorses the original decision made by the Communities, Housing and Environment Committee.

Minutes:

Members noted that the Decision Referral had been brought to this Committee as the Public Spaces Protection Order approved by the Housing, Communities and Environment Committee only covered the town centre and some Members felt that there were some anti-social behaviour issues in the rural areas as well and would like the Public Spaces Protection Order to reflect this or alternatively for a report to go back to the Housing, Communities and Environment Committee which provided details of an assessment of anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder in rural areas.

 

The Head of Housing and Community Services advised Members that a strategic assessment on crime and disorder reduction would be presented to the Housing, Communities and Environment Committee in March next year which would include an assessment of anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder across the Borough, including rural areas.

 

RESOLVED:

 

1)  That the desired outcome of the Decision Referral be endorsed which was as follows:-

“That the Communities, Housing and Environment Committee receive a report setting out a strategic assessment of anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder for the rural areas of the borough and recommended action for reduction of these issues”; and

2)  That the Committee also endorses the original decision made by the Communities, Housing and Environment Committee.
