£150 Energy Rebate Scheme

Anyone in properties banded A-D and who have historically been paying by direct debit will receive their payment this week. A letter is being sent to Non direct debit payers advising how to apply for the payment or you can complete an online application. Newer direct debit customers that did not get a payment this week will also need to apply via this form.

Discretionary payments for Bands E-H will be around mid-June once further software upgrades have been completed.

Public Spaces Protection Order

Map icon

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is designed to stop individuals or groups committing antisocial behaviour in a public space.

Before a PSPO can be issued, the Council must be able to show that the behaviour which will be restricted under the Order:

  • has, or is likely to have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality
  • is of a persistent or continuing nature
  • is unreasonable

A PSPO can contain both restrictions and requirements which will be determined by the Council after consultation with the Police and other relevant agencies or partners.  Orders can be targeted against particular behaviours by particular groups at specific times with more than one restriction being included within the PSPO.

Breaching a PSPO is a criminal offence.  If appropriate, a breach may be dealt with by means of a Fixed Penalty Notice in lieu of prosecution in a Magistrates Court.
