Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO)

Public Space Protection Orders 2021

The Council is undertaking public consultation on the proposal to introduce Public Space Protection Orders to address alcohol and dog related nuisance in the borough. 

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 makes provision for Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) which are intended to be used to control and restrict anti-social behaviour in public spaces. They can also help by giving local councils and the police additional powers to tackle anti-social behaviour in specific locations. Once agreed, Orders can be enforced by a police officer, police community support officer and delegated council officers. A breach of the Order is a criminal offence and can be dealt with through the issuing of a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100, or a fine of up to £1,000 on prosecution. 

The Consultation is open for 28 days and will close on 24 November 2021. Please provide your feedback using the survey link below. 

Please refer to the information documents attached for more details on the proposed order to help inform your responses.
