Public Spaces Protection Order - Broadweir Road Cwmbran

The Torfaen Community Safety Partnership has received reports of anti-social behaviour in the Broadweir Road area of Cwmbran, specifically in the area outlined by the attached map. We believe that the nuisance is specific in nature and focused on this particular area and has given rise to concerns for those who live by the canal and use the towpath.

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 allows for the making of a Public Spaces Protection Order in cases where the Local Authority feels that such action is justified to stop anti-social behaviour.

A Public Spaces Protection Order will not stop the lawful use of the area and the majority of people will be able to continue to do so under the current terms of use. The Order will allow us to consider fines and prosecution for anyone who is in breach of the prohibitions contained within the Order.

In proposing to make a Public Spaces Protection Order, we are satisfied that the behaviours exhibited by some individuals in area are having or have had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality, is persistent in nature and the behaviours reported by members of the public justifies the restrictions imposed.

A consultation period with residents and all other interested parties that could be identified took place in August 2020, commencing on 11th August 2020 for 30 days.

Anyone who lives in, or regularly works in or visits the area can appeal a PSPO in the High Court within six weeks of issue. Further appeal is available each time the PSPO is varied by the council.
