More Fatal Flaws in the SBC Car Cruising PSPO
Today’s Guest Author is none other than campaigner ANDY STRANGEWAY, who has kindly allowed the Enquirer to reproduce his article on further fatal flaws in the legalities of the SBC Car Cruising PSPO. The question now arises: why are we paying £75K per annum for a Council solicitor who seems incapable of drafting an Order that is statute compliant and legally enforceable?
Scarborough Borough Council Ignore Complaint Evidence
With full knowledge of all the Group Leaders, Scarborough Borough Council has ignored evidence which I submitted for a complaint that demonstrated that Lisa Dixon, Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) Director of Legal & Democratic Services is presiding over an unlawful Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) prohibiting car cruising.
The evidence can be seen below:
Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 – 65 – 1 states:
- “A public spaces protection order may not restrict the public right of way over a highway.”
The SBC Car Cruising PSPO restricts the public right of way over a highway. The PSPO should never have been introduced.
I have requested SBC to inform me why this part of my complaint has been ignored and how this failure will be corrected?
