Birmingham City Council’s consultation on the possible introduction of a Public Spaces Protection Order to reduce noise levels in the city centre has been extended by a week, due to the public response received since it was launched last month.
This consultation is in response to complaints to both Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Police from members of the public, businesses and residents who are no longer enjoying the city centre due to excessive noise levels.
We are currently seeking views from all interested groups and individuals on this issue of public concern – who now have until Monday, 29 June 2015 to view the proposal and submit their ideas and views.
We would encourage everyone to have their say by visiting the website below: www.birminghambeheard.org.uk/place/the-introduction-of-public-spaces-protection-order/consult_view
Please note: This proposal is not seeking to ban buskers and street entertainers from performing or people from speaking publicly, but aims to control excessive noise from the use of amplification equipment.
