People are being asked to have a say on a review of the PSPO which currently applies to Corby town centre and the surrounding area.

The order was granted in December 2015 for three years, and Corby Council is now required to review it and apply for a further PSPO in order to keep it in place.

The PSPO prohibits:

Persons to be in possession of open containers with alcohol in, within the area covered by the PSPO

Persons not to drink, consume or take intoxicating substances within the area covered by the PSPO

Persons not to act in a manner that causes alarm, harassment or distress as a result of consuming alcohol or taking intoxicating substances

Persons not to beg within the area covered by the PSPO

These conditions can be enforced by a police officer, PCSO or neighbourhood wardens.

Corby Council is proposing that the conditions and the area that the order covers remains the same and that it continues for a period of three years.

A copy of the order and a map showing the area it covers can be seen by members of the public at the One Stop Shop in the Corby Cube, or at www.corby.gov.uk.

Residents have until Friday, October 16, to put their views forward on the proposals and can do so by clicking here or calling 01536 464176.
