Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) can be made by the council to deal with a particular problem in an area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life. PSPOs impose conditions on the use of the area.

They are designed to ensure that public spaces can be enjoyed, safe from anti-social behaviour.

Failure to comply with this order is a criminal offence. Breach of a PSPO may lead to a £100 Fixed Penalty Notice. A person found guilty of such an offence is liable, on conviction, to a fine of £1000.

West Kirby Beach and Cubbins Green PSPO/004

Wirral Council is looking to introduce a temporary Public Spaces Protection Order for the West Kirby beach/Cubbins Green area.

This is in response to crime and anti-social behaviour in this area, which has increased dramatically recently. In the last four months there have been more than 120 complaints made to Merseyside Police.

This anti-social behaviour is a nuisance and annoyance to members of the public who visit and live in the area.

The proposal is for a two-year Public Spaces Protection Order for West Kirby beach/Cubbins Green to give the police and council stronger powers to tackle certain anti-social behaviours, which will in turn improve the quality of life for the majority of local people.

From Monday 27 July for two weeks we are asking people for their views on this proposal.
