Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) are powers introduced by local authorities (under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014) to help deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a particular area that is damaging to the local community's quality of life.
Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with nuisance or problems in an area that cause harm to the quality of life of the local community.
The power to make a Public Spaces Protection Order was given to District Councils by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
Before making an order, the council must consult with the local chief officer of police, and the local policing body, community representatives and the owner or occupier of land within the restricted area. The Council must also notify the County Council and Parish (Town) Council of the proposed order.
