Campaign for a Brough-Wide DPPO for Boston, Lincolnshire sign now

As a resident of the borough I am concerned with the issue of street drinking and its impact on not only the residents, but the businesses and visitors of the borough. Street drinking can have a profound effect on the community and can lead to anti-social behaviour.

What is a DPPO?
 ‘Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs) give police officers discretionary powers to require a person to stop drinking and confiscate alcohol or containers of alcohol in public places. Failure to comply with alcohol restrictions in DPPOs can result in arrest and/or a fine of up to £500.

DPPOs are implemented by local councils in order to address alcohol-related crime and disorder in public places.
As of June 2009, 712 DPPOs have implemented by local authorities since Section 13 of the Police and Criminal Justice Act 2001 gave councils the power to do so where they were satisfied that areas were suffering from alcohol-related crime and disorder.

A common impact of enforcement of DPPO powers is displacement of street drinking to nearby areas’.

This is the problem in Boston, it is moving the drinkers into residential areas.
I firmly believe that all residents, and all neigbourhoods deserve this kind of protection, if it is good enough for town centre areas, then it is good enough for all areas of the Borough.

The benefits of a Borough-Wide DPPO would be;
•There would be no confusion to the public as to which areas were included in the DPPO.
•It meant that all residents could receive the benefit of have the DPPO in their area. After all, why should one group of residents have the peace of mind that the order brings and why should others not feel the benefit too?

Please join me in this campaign.
