FOLLOWING the headline in the Wisbech Standard in relation to the proposed Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) for Wisbech there are some inaccuracies which need addressing.
The areas identified in the proposed order will not have a ban on street drinking imposed. Rather the order would enable the police to take action against people who are drinking and causing problems.
The majority of people drinking in parks and other areas of Wisbech do so without problems and these people will not be affected.
The order is designed to tackle a minority of people who cause the majority of the problems.

It is a carefully balanced tool which will enable the police to work with residents and other partner organisations to tackle the issues identified in the reports.
The proposals to be advertised on September 5 are subject to public consultation, observations on which must be received in the Licensing Section, Fenland Hall, by October 3 and the results will be considered later in October.
