Public Space Protection Order
Public Space Protection Order Consultation - highway car sales
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council is currently undertaking a public consultation on a proposed Public Space Protection Order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. This order relates to highway vehicle sales and would prohibit anyone exposing for sale a vehicle on certain public highways in the Borough. Leaving vehicles exposed for sale in prominant locations is a cause of significant concern for residents, businesses and visitors to the area.
As part of a partnership approach towards this problem, it has been decided to apply for a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for Nuneaton and Bedworth to help address the concerns related to highway vehicle sales.
What area will be covered
The proposed order would prohibit vehicles being exposed for sale on A and B category roads within the Borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth.
