Council Claim Sleeping Is Anti-Social Behaviour

In an attempt to ban overnight parking Hambleton District Council (HDC) are claiming that sleeping is anti-social behaviour.

As part of Evaluation Consultation (October 2019) of Leeming Bar Industrial Estate and Surrounding Areas Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) under “The Current Situation” section HDC claim:

“Despite the efforts made by the Council to inform drivers using the area of the prohibition on sleeping in their vehicles (and the anti-social behaviour associated with this)”

I hold my hand up to various activities I undertake while sleeping:

  1. Snoring
  2. Talking
  3. Passing wind

Since when have these activities become anti-social behaviour? Does this mean that the full population of the UK will be given an ASBO?

Good Afternoon,

Could I please refer you to (LINK)?

Could you please clarify what activity is undertaken while sleeping that HDC considers being anti-social behaviour?

If there is no such activity the Evaluation Consultation (October 2019) becomes null and void.
