Public Spaces Protection Order (Street drinking)

Following numerous complaints from local residents, we are pleased to confirm we have managed to get agreement from both Bath & North East Somerset Council and the Police to make Twerton High Street a family friendly environment, with the implementation of a Public Spaces Protection Order.  

This means that it is an offence to drink alcohol publicly and if caught may be issue with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

Councillor Tim Ball and local campaigner Sarah Moore were out in Twerton High Street yesterday erecting the notices, which means this order is now legally enforceable and anyone caught in contravention of this order can now be dealt with accordingly.

This is another step forward in making Twerton a community for everyone to enjoy.
