Decision details

Public Space Protection Order – Hobson Street, Failsworth

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - HR and Corporate Reform (Councillor Amanda Chadderton)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

The purpose of this report is to seek approval to make a Public Spaces Protection Order pursuant to powers contained in Sections 59 to 65 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. The proposed terms of the Order are the installation of gates on the highway, as detailed on the map in Schedule 1 and the imposition of restrictions upon other behaviours within the gated area, as detailed in Schedule 2.

Decision:

RESOLVED - That the preferred option is the making of the Public Spaces Protection Order with the terms detailed in Schedules 1 and 2 (Appendix 2).
The cost of erecting and installing the gates will be met by funding identified by the Elected Members for the Ward. This work will be undertaken by PG Fabrications at a total cost of £2394.
It is proposed to prevent access to all traffic (including pedestrian) with the exception of residents, persons with the residents’ permission, persons having a private right of access and the Statutory Undertakers.

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 - the above option
Option 2 - The alternative to installing gates is to ‘target harden’ all properties on either side of the alleyway, however the nature of some of the crimes and incidents and the cost of such action makes this alternative unrealistic and cost prohibitive.

Alternative options considered:

Option 2 - The alternative to installing gates is to ‘target harden’ all properties on either side of the alleyway, however the nature of some of the crimes and incidents and the cost of such action makes this alternative unrealistic and cost prohibitive.
