Report of the Chief Licensing Officer



The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report on the results of the consultation undertaken in connection with the proposed extension of the Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) which had been implemented in respect of the area known as Market Square, Woodhouse, into Tannery Park.  The report indicated that approval had been given to the continuation of the Order at a meeting of the Licensing Sub-Committee held on 16th October 2012 and, as part of the decision at that meeting, the Sub-Committee had agreed that consultation be undertaken with relevant individuals, groups and organisations on the extension of the Order into Tannery Park, as requested by the Sheffield South East Safer Neighbourhood Area (SNA).




Although Inspector Jason Booth, Sheffield South East SNA, was not present at the meeting, the Committee considered a presentation which he had prepared on the results of the consultation.  The information contained in the presentation indicated that the three Woodhouse Ward Councillors, local residents, community groups and organisations and the Police were all in favour of the Order being extended into Tannery Park. 




RESOLVED: That the Committee:-





notes the contents of the report now submitted, together with the comments now made;






in the light of the information contained in the report, specifically the comments and views expressed as part of the consultation, approves the extension of the Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) for Woodhouse into Tannery Park; and






expresses its thanks and appreciation for the work undertaken by the Police and the other statutory and voluntary organisations, in respect of the excellent manner in how the DPPO had been operated in Woodhouse.
