Public Spaces Protection Orders
Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO)
The Council has recently undertaken a consultation for the renewal and amendment of its Borough Wide PSPO for Dog Control and its Town Centre PSPO for a range of anti-social behaviour provisions, to continue to provide enforcement officers with ongoing and additional powers to tackle irresponsible behaviour. A consultation was also undertaken with regard to the implementation of a PSPO for the gating of certain public alleyways within the Isebrook and Victoria Wards, as part of an OPFCC Safer Streets funded project. PSPO's are designed to stop individuals or groups of individuals committing anti-social behaviour in a public space.
The results of the consultation which ran from the 23rd September 2020 until 21st October 2020 informed the development of the following three PSPO's which were formally approved and deemed to be made on the 10th November 2020.
Part 4, Chapter 2 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act, 2014 provides for interested persons to question the validity of an Order on certain grounds via application to the High Court within six weeks from the date on which the Order is made.
