Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) - Have your say

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 gave local authorities and the police new powers to deal with anti-social behaviour within their areas.  The reforms are designed to put victims at the heart of the response to anti-social behaviour.

Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) are designed to focus on the impact that anti-social behaviour is having on local communities and legitimate users of public spaces.

Local councils are responsible for making PSPOs, although the enforcement of them also includes the police.

A PSPO can be made by the council if it is satisfied on reasonable grounds that the activities and behaviour carried out or likely to be carried out, in a public space;

·         Have had, or are likely to have, a detrimental effect on the quality of like of those in the locality;

·         Is, or is likely to be, persistent or continuing in nature;

·         Is, or is likely to be, unreasonable; and

·         Justifies the restrictions imposed.

North Lincolnshire Council, after consultation with partners, has proposed the following prohibitions for North Lincolnshire and is seeking the public’s view on these potential prohibitions.


This consultation will close on Friday 22 September 2017.
