People are being asked their views on anti-social behaviour controls across east Suffolk.

With 10 Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in place across the district, views are being sought as East Suffolk Council is now questioning whether they are still needed.

Over the last year, PSPO's have replaced the designated Public Place Orders (DPPO's) in the district due to the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

During this process, East Suffolk Council has liaised with Suffolk Police to review the PSPOs.

Nicole Rickard, head of communities, said: 'There are currently 10 PSPOs in place in east Suffolk.

'After recently reviewing these, we have found no evidence to suggest that they are actually needed because there are other, better ways to deal with the issues that they are trying to tackle.

'Therefore, before the council makes any decisions on the issue, a public consultation has been launched to ask the public for their view.'

The consultation is now open, running from May 7 until June 17, and the council wants to hear your views via www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TVCLQGFAll consultation responses will be given due consideration by the council before any decisions are made.
