Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs)

A Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) bans or restricts certain acts or behaviour in a certain area. They’re used in areas where certain behaviour is having a negative effect on the quality of life of those using the space.

Breaking a PSPO is a criminal offence and can lead to a fixed penalty notice or prosecution.
