Residents in four Breckland towns will be able to have their say on new powers which can help tackle anti-social and nuisance behaviour.
Currently, Designated Public Place Orders (more commonly known as alcohol exclusion zones) are in place in Breckland's five market towns.
Under changes in legislation, these orders will automatically become Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in October.
After a public consultation in Thetford, Breckland District Council voted to enforce the new powers at a recent cabinet meeting.
This includes prohibiting urination and defecation in a public place and maintaining the existing prohibition of alcohol consumption.

Public consultations for Dereham, Watton, Attleborough and Swaffham will be held later in the year.
The PSPOs will be tailored to suit each town and the additional powers which will be needed.
