A Drinking Ban in Wisbech

This petition made change with 2,307 supporters!


Wisbech is blighted with drunken behaviour and the people have been absolutely clear on what they are looking for. An absolute zero tolerance policy to drunk and disorderly behaviour, a drinking ban supported by PSPO's or similar legislation, across the whole town, fines, ASBO's or similar banning orders for repeat offenders. A reveiw of the alcohol licenses currently active within the town, including a number of takeaway outlets reportedly selling alcohol from 2pm-3am in some cases. A commitment from the PCC Jason Ablewight and Steve Barclay to adequately fight to resource Wisbech appropriately to cope with all measures brought forward. 

A large number of Citizens have expressed that they are frightened to use certain hotspots in the town, such as Tillery Park and St Peters Gardens and some even claim to avoid the town centre all together. There is no point continuing with further economic development of the town if this, one of its core social problems, is not tackled head on. This should include support for rehabilitation and homelessness. A plan to clearly communicate back to the town what action you are persuing, including estimated timelines, should be put in place to demonstrate the work you are doing. Transparency is key.
