Trafford Park’s car cruising ban extended

Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) extended. The original order would have expired after three years but it’s continuing in place.

Councillor Cordingley’s submission

Subject: Re: Public Spaces Protection Order – Trafford Park

Very much in favour of its extension. Although it’s not a perfect deterrent. I have no doubt that it helps discourage the return of the situation that existed in Trafford Park. The area remains attractive to the cruising/speed meet community. The death of Sophie sadly has had the biggest impact but the threat of that type of behaviour taking root again is always there and the protection order is an important tool in prevention.

What the extension means

Those who race their cars, go drifting, spinning or do donuts in Trafford Park face an on the spot fine of up to £1,000.
