If you live in the Salisbury area you are being asked for your views on a revised proposed plan to reduce anti-social behaviour.

Wiltshire Council is proposing a Public Spaces Protection Order within Salisbury to help deal with a number of anti-social behaviour issues brought to their attention.  A consultation was carried out in June this year and following that the proposed order has been amended.

The revised order will cover behaviour including alcohol consumption in public places, loitering in public toilets and leaving a food source for vermin. People are encouraged to provide their views and feedback via a new consultation which runs until 12 November.

Wiltshire Council cabinet member for public protection, Jerry Wickham said: “Anti-social behaviour has a really negative impact on our local communities and can blight the otherwise fantastic and safe county that we live in.

“Following good feedback from people we have revised our plans and the results of this new consultation will be really important in deciding whether this is the best option for our partners and us to bring in.”

If the proposals are accepted and put into place, anyone caught by an authorised person breaching the order could be liable to prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.

Anyone who wants to make any representation to the proposals should send them to Rowena Lansdown, Public Protection service, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Bythesea Road, Trowbridge, BA14 8JN, or email The consultation can also be found at

If agreed, Wiltshire Council will work with Wiltshire Police and Salisbury City Council to implement the order.
