Petition | Don’t make life harder for Oxford’s rough sleepers |

So it looks like Oxford City Council has decided that rough sleeping isn’t hard enough as it is.

They are proposing a ban on various ‘anti-social activities’ in the city centre (by using new ‘public spaces protection order’ powers, PSPOs). One of the activities Oxford City plan to ban and criminalise is “rough sleeping”.

We at On Your Doorstep believe that the proposed ban is an attempt to cover up the huge housing and homelessness crisis that Oxford faces. We know that with this policy the council are trying to gloss over the long term issue of homelessness and are discriminating against Oxford’s rough sleepers.
