Public Space Protection Order - Controlled Alcohol Zones

The Council's Cabinet recently agreed to consult on the proposal to vary the current Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in place by increasing the restricted areas covered by it, in respect of alcohol related Anti-Social Behaviour.


The current PSPO was introduced in 2017 and is due to be reviewed before it expires in October 2020. 


In light of recent incidents related to anti-social behaviour and mass gatherings, the Council is seeking to extend the order to cover six new locations. They are:

  • Cosmeston Country Park

  • Porthkerry Country Park

  • Penarth Pier and Esplanade

  • Ogmore beach and surrounding common land

  • Cwm Col-Huw in Llantwit Major

  • Rhoose Point


The Cabinet Report provides more information on the areas covered by current PSPO and the reasons for seeking an extension.


The documents below show the current areas covered by the PSPO as well as the proposed areas:
