We have launched a public consultation to seek views on eight proposed Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs).

A PSPO allows councils to impose restrictions on the use of specific areas. They intend to help ensure that the public can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.

The proposals include six PSPOs which are set at town level and would replace existing Orders for West Dorset and Weymouth and Portland areas when they expire in 2022. The remaining two PSPOs outline new restrictions on camping on beaches and measures to help prevent wildfires. This would prohibit the lighting of fires and other actions which could cause wildfire in specific areas.

There is a survey for each of the eight proposed PSPOs, please complete the survey which is relevant to the area/topic you would like to feedback on. You can complete as many of the surveys as you wish.
