Public spaces protection orders

See information about the dog control public spaces protection order issued in the district

We use public spaces protection orders (PSPOs) to tackle antisocial behaviour and ensure public spaces across the district are safe and enjoyable places to work, live and visit.

PSPOs impose restrictions on certain behaviours in public places. We work with the police to enforce PSPOs and prevent antisocial behaviour.

Breaking a PSPO is a criminal offence and can result in a fixed penalty notice of £75.
