Public Space Protection Orders

 

I did an interview with Radio Stoke this week in the Park about the new Public Space Protection Orders

TROUBLEMAKERS may be dealt with on the spot as Cheshire East Council has vowed to use new powers to crack down on anti-social hotspots.

Cheshire East Council’s communities and enforcement teams now have the power to apply Public Space Protection Orders and issue on-the-spot fines to individuals who breach an order.

The new powers, under the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Police Act 2014, will eliminate the need for court proceedings or civil action, and allow Cheshire East to empower its officers to take immediate action.

The new measures, introduced by the government last year, could be applied in at least five areas in the borough, including two areas in Crewe that has seen regular anti-social behaviour.

While in theory this is a good move and can be applied to dogs off the lead in the park etc as there are no wardens and no one to enforce it its a waste of time nothing will change

The Gulf War flower bed planted by ANTS now has lots of dead plants as no one waters them so this once again has been a waste of time money and effort but they wont be told

Coronation has been mown again but it will be left for another  few months before its done again so it will be back to a jungle by then. It may not have been the best idea cutting it now with kids off school all that straw hanging about get some dry weather and kids will think its fun to light it. The rabbit like it though they are growing now

New Dogs must be on Lead Signs

Lots of new signs all around the park dogs must be on a lead mostly around the lake as if it doesnt matter in other areas the problem being no one takes any notice and with no wardens to enforce it what the point. Below the stroke club meeting last week and low and behold a dog off the lead

Looking at the islands the wildlife group spent ages clearing all the weeds last year but they were advised it would be a waste of time if you chop up a dock leaf roots you get half a dozen not one there were advised to use a safe weed killer but didnt listen. The few bush's they planted have disappeared under the weeds as it is its best for wildlife they can hide in the weeds

Its likely the paths will start in 2 months but first they must check the trees as digging the paths next to trees will cut roots and could kill the trees
