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.

Maps showing the affected roads are available here;


We are seeking the views of residents, businesses and agencies in relation to the proposed PSPO - highway car sales.

All responses to the consultation should be emailed to by Friday 27th August 2021.

A paper copy of the proposed order is also available for inspection at Nuneaton Town Hall, Coton Road, Nuneaton CV11 5AA, however, this is by prior appointment only on Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm and can be arranged by calling 024 7637 6376.

Alternatively, postal responses should be sent to Environmental Health, Town Hall, Coton Road, Nuneaton CV11 5AA by Friday 27th August 2021.

What happens next

All comments received during the consultation period (15 July 2021 to 27 August 2021) will be considered and be used to inform the final Public Space Protection Order.

Overview of Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO)

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Police and Crime Act 2014 introduced new powers on 20 October 2014 for dealing with local neighbourhood issues. Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) were introduced as one of the tools and can be used to protect the public from behaviour that is having, or is likely to have, a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality and is persistent and unreasonable.
