Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO)

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) aims to prevent particular things that are harming the quality of life of people in the local community.

A Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) is a power under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

The Protection Order allows us to deal with problems in public spaces in the borough, that have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of the local community, by imposing conditions and requirements of the use of that area for everyone that uses it.

Police or accredited Council Officers can issue Fixed Penalty Notices of £100 to, or may prosecute, anyone who does something that may cause the harm that an order is intended to prevent.
