There is still time for residents to have their say on whether the Public Spaces Protection Order in Bolton town centre should be extended.

The order, which was introduced in 2019, is designed to ensure that people can enjoy public spaces in the town centre without worrying about anti-social behaviour.

The PSPO was originally backed by Bolton businesses, community groups and members of the public.

Activities banned under the PSPO include street drinking, begging, unlicensed leafleting and cycling in pedestrianised areas.

Around 88 fixed penalty notices have been issued to those who repeatedly flout the rules.

Consultation responses will be used alongside other information to help the council decide whether the PSPO should be extended for another three years or not.

Residents can have their say on the Bolton Council website or via the following link:
