A CRACKDOWN on antisocial behaviour in the town centre could result in police being given powers to give people a £1,000 fine for misbehaving.

The council is looking to introduce a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for the town centre and surrounding areas including Sheffield Rd, Doncaster Rd, Cemetery Road and Wood Street.

A 28 day consultation will take place from Monday 7 December until midnight 3 January 2016.

A spokesman said: “The Public Spaces Protection Order will help us to deal with particular, ongoing problems which are negatively affecting those living, working, and visiting the town centre."
