These humorous plaques were put by unknown people on the benches of Cheshire West and Chester City as a mark of protest to the proposed Public Space Protection Order. While the city views the plan as a way to combat ‘antisocial’ behavior in the local area, the protestors hold the view that PSPO could ‘target the homeless and socially vulnerable’.
You might be amused by the plaques, but the city council sure wasn’t. They decided that some people could find the plaques ‘offensive’ and removed all five of them. The council is also on a hunt to find the artist(s) responsible.
