Proposed Public Spaces Protection Order (“PSPO”) across the Council’s riverside parks in Evesham


Wychavon District Council is consulting on a proposal to make a PSPO across the Council’s riverside parks in Evesham.  This includes the following:

  • Abbey Park
  • Corporation Meadow
  • Crown Meadow
  • Viaduct Meadow
  • Waterside Gardens
  • Workman Gardens


The aim of the proposed PSPO is to target alcohol related anti-social behaviour across the parks by prohibiting the consumption of alcohol in these areas.  The PSPO will also prohibit urination and defecation.  The PSPO will provide both the police and the council with more powers to take action against any perpetrators.

The Council would like to hear your views on whether we should introduce the PSPO.  To assist this, we have created a short questionnaire which can be found in the links below.  You will also find an FAQ document which provides more information on what a PSPO is and what exactly the Council is proposing.  We have also included a draft of the proposed Order and plans showing the locations of the parks.  The consultation period will remain open until 5PM on 24th May 2018.
