Views are invited on proposals to renew the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) that prohibits night fishing and camping at Brownes Ponds and Taunton Road Ponds in Bridgwater.

The PSPO means that anyone fishing or camping in the designated areas between sunset and sunrise must leave immediately when directed to do so by an authorised person. This is to reduce noise and anti-social behaviour impacts on local residents.
