Public Space Protection Orders

Sometimes referred to as PSPOs, these orders are designed to prevent individuals or groups of people behaving in a way that has (or is likely to have) a detrimental effect on other people’s quality of life in a locality, including persistent anti-social behaviour.

We’re now consulting on proposals for public space protection orders. The consultation will run from noon February 1 until March 31 2017. All feedback will be considered before a final decision is made on how to proceed.
