Recommended Posts

People could find themselves being issued with an instant fine for revving their engines, playing loud music or just being a general nuisance in local car park.

Public order comes into force for Hereford car park.

Herefordshire Council has introduced a public spaces protection order for Garrick multi-storey car park in Widemarsh Street in Hereford.

The order comes into force on Sunday 1 May 2022.

Having consulted on the matter, the order is being implemented to reduce the antisocial behaviour that has been happening in the car park.

As well as posting news of the order on our website, we will place signs within the car park. Implementing the order allows the council and the police to issue on-the-spot fines to offenders.

Marc Willimont, Herefordshire Council’s head of public protection, economy and environment, says:

“We hope local residents will be reassured that the council is working to make all our public spaces free from all forms of antisocial behaviour. Nuisance behaviour, including drinking alcohol and playing loud music in open spaces, can blight people’s lives. In the worst cases, the antisocial behaviour of just a few can deter the many from enjoying some of our most precious public spaces. Clearly, that’s unfair on them, so this order will make Garrick multi-storey car park a more welcoming place in future for everyone to use. It will also protect the nearby residents from the noise and nuisance caused by gangs revving cars, loud car stereos and all the other sorts of antisocial behaviour associated with these activities.”
