Proposed renewal of the Public Space Protection Order tackling anti-social behaviour in relation to alcohol. 

The Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB), Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced a set of streamlined tools to address Anti-Social Behaviour and the impact that this behaviour can have on individuals and communities. Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO’s) are one of these tools. PSPO’s differ from other tools as they are council led and are designed to prohibit certain activities or can require that people do certain things when engaging in certain activities within a defined public area.

Since October 2020, Merton has had a PSPO specially designed to address the associated ASB related to alcohol. This PSPO has been based in the five wards of Cricket Green, Figges Marsh, Graveney, Lavender Fields and Ravensbury and is due to expire in October 2022.  

We have to ensure that the PSPO is proportionate and follows an evidence led approach. Following our assessment of the available data, our proposal is to renew the current PSPO from October 2022, but also to assess and consider if the same PSPO powers should be in place in any other areas of the borough. 

Details of the current PSPO area can be found on our website.

This consultation is seeking to collect views on the renewal of the PSPO and prohibitions as well as looking to collect more general perception information.

London Climate Action Week begins on 25 June, so it’s the perfect opportunity to find out more about what residents are doing to save the planet (big, small, or nothing at all).

More importantly, it is to ask what the main barriers to action are and to help feed into a new Climate Action Engagement Strategy that the Council will be developing over the next few months.

The survey will remain open until 3 July (the end of London Climate Action Week), so please take two minutes to fill in the survey. Results of the survey will be issued through Merton’s Climate Action Newsletter

The London Fire Brigade 2023-2029 plan called ‘Your London Fire Brigade’ sets out the approach to keeping Londoners safe. It was developed over months working with local communities. 

London Fire Brigade need your help to find out if they've got it right. The plan meets requirements of the Fire and Rescue National Framework for England to produce what they call an integrated risk management plan.

This consultation will take about 10 minutes to complete.

You may find it helpful to read the draft plan and more background information in advance. 

The survey will close on Monday 25 July 2022.

Transport for London is consulting on roposals to expand the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) London-wide on 29 August 2023.

TfL are also seeking views on what the priorities should be as they think about the future of road user charging.
